The Grand Prix of the Valencian Community says goodbye this weekend, from the Circuit Ricardo Tormo de Cheste, a motorcycle World Championship already awarded in MotoGP and Moto3, with an open fight between Fernández and Gardner for the Moto2 title although with shared prominence with ‘The Doctor’ Valentino Rossi, that puts an end to his guard.

Cheste will have the honor of crowning the new Moto2 champion. Part like clear favorite Australian Remy Gardner (Red Bull KTM Ajo) and his only rival is his teammate, the Spanish Raúl Fernández.

Gardner, winner of the last round in Portimao ahead of Fernández, settled down even more as the favorite. He has a 23-point margin and an advantage over the Spaniard, who needs a true miracle to be champion.

Basically Needs Gardner to crash and crash or breakdown or that, in case of finishing the degree, do it in fifteenth position as much. Perhaps the great enemy for Gardner is pressure, in addition to having the public against it.

Meanwhile, in Moto3 there will be cause for celebration for the Spanish fan, who will be able to pay tribute to a Pedro Acosta (KTM) who won the race in the Algarve and thus achieved his first World title at just 17 years old. A resounding success that Mazarrón will try to celebrate with a final victory in Cheste.

With Dennis Foggia as runner-up, the Spanish Sergio García Dols will try to defend the third place in the championship against the Italian Romano Fenati and the Spanish Jaume Masià, who will seek to give some color in the race to a championship that will not have the emotion of the category intermediate.

Deserved goodbye to Rossi

Cheste will also be the setting for the final farewell to Valentino Rossi, the nine-time world champion rider, seven of them in the premier class, who will hang up his jumpsuit and say goodbye to the asphalt after 25 seasons in the World Championship and as a living history of motorcycling. The ‘Doctor’ leaves but not completely, as he will act as ‘manager’ of his teams.

However, unless you think about it in the immediate future or it is a tribute event, fans who come to the Circuit Ricardo Tormo will be the last to see ride and compete in MotoGP who dominated the category with five consecutive titles between 2001 and 2005, and that in 2008 and 2009 it flew again.
