The All-Marquez squad may affect Marc

Honda’s decision to pair the newly-dominated MotoGP 2019, Marc Marquez and Alex Marquez, could affect their title competition this season.

After Lorenzo’s decision to retire from the MotoGP racing career after a traumatic disaster in the 2019 season, Honda decided to choose the Moto2 2019 champion, Alex Marquez, on an empty seat to become a teammate with his senior Marc Marquez. Since then, the focus has focused on Alex being able to prove himself worthy of Lorenzo and also under pressure when constantly being compared to his 6-time champion MotoGP?

But, speaking in Germany’s Motorsport.com season evaluation video, three-time 500cc champion Rainey shared the Honda Repsol arrangement. He didn’t know if that was the right decision, because he thought Marc would focus on his younger brother now, to make sure Alex was doing well. Previously, he only had to think about how fast he could race. And now, Marc might have more thought that his younger brother was racing on another race car and that another level could keep pace with everyone? This may be another balance and it may affect Marc more than Alex.

Alex Marquez revealed that having a brother and also his teammate in the Honda Repsol race is what makes him feel the pressure as the closer to the opening day of the MotoGP 2020 season.

Alex Marquez affirmed his success as a Moto2 champion was a factor that allowed him to join the Repsol Honda racing team with his brother “Mark Marquez” in the 2020 MotoGP campaign, this convergence is also full of uncertainty suspected because of the sudden retirement announcement of “Lorenzo” before the end of the MotoGP 2019 season contract.

Alex Marquez is also the youngest driver signed a contract with Repsol Honda as a teammate with his brother. Launched in the pilot program at the end of the 2019 season in Valencia and Jerez, Spain. This is considered a new history page that the two Marquez brothers are in the same team. There were rumors that this contract was due to the intervention of “Marc Marquez” but later Marc Marquez confirmed that he was not involved.

Within a few months, the 2020 season will start and readers can witness the new competitions, as well as the strength of this young driver when he is with his brother in the Honda Repsol team 2020.

The historical reunion between the legendary F1 and MotoGP

Preparations for the race in the Netherlands in early May 2020 are entering the sprint phase. With racing structure adjustments, the organizers hope to bring an exciting event.

In addition, two outstanding individuals of the two leading racing modes had an interesting day at Ricardo Tormo racecourse, Valencia.

The Netherlands will officially return to F1 for the first time since 1985 in early May and the famous Zandvoort race is being upgraded to prepare for this important event. In the latest updated photos of the current construction process, more than 4 months before the event, two unique steep bends are being erected along with an improvement in the outside run-off the track, as well as the paddock area in the pit.

The last bend, called Arie Luyendijkbocht, after the name of the Dutch twice-person Indy500 Arie Luyendyk, was designed to be inclined to the right.

This allows the vehicles to cross over here faster to reach the starting line at the starting/destination line at a higher speed, opening up the opportunity to attack and overtake in the 1 track. Hugenholtzbocht has the same left-leaning slope design, which leads to a high-speed stretch of road to Scheivlak 8, which is another opportunity to surpass. They expected the work will be completed in February.

Dutch sports director GP – and former F1 driver Jan Lammers said: “With these adjustments, the Zandvoort racetrack has become the most challenging but also the most beautiful race track in Europe, even is in the world. With a starting point at Zandvoort, and a speed sports lover, I feel proud of this new race”.

The late FIA ​​race director Charlie Whiting visited the racetrack in September 2018 to check the evaluation with an Italian intermediary, Studio Dromo, in charge of the upgrade. In addition to the two notable bends, they also plan to expand the paddock area, open the tunnel under the track and the new run-off gravel area. Let’s look forward to a completely new look of Zandvoort in May.

The history of the Tour de France World Cycling Tournament

The world’s largest cycling tournament Tour de France is a sports event loved by tens of millions of people around the world but little is known about the history of this race.

Tour de France (French) – also known as Grande Boucle or simply Le Tour, translates to Around France.

The idea of ​​Tour de France dates back to the 1900s. At that time, there was a major sports newspaper in France – L’Auto Velo. When L’Auto Velo published an article supporting Mr. Albert Dreyfus – a French soldier accused of selling military secrets to Germany – made L’Auto Velo sponsor angry and decided to set up a sports newspaper to be a competitor – Le Velo. After Dreyfus, France split into two camps – those who believed that Dreyfus was guilty and those who thought he was innocent. The sponsor sided with the first, and forced L’Auto Velo to change its name to L’Auto.

The competition between the two newspapers became fierce and L’Auto quickly lost ground to the opponent. To survive, the newspaper needs to do something stronger.

This idea was formed in 1902 by Georges Lefèvre – a journalist of L’Auto. He wants to have a tough, long, scale and better bike race than any race before. The first tour de France began on July 1, 1903, starting in Montgeron on the outskirts of Paris with 60 riders participating in the competition, a 6-stage race with a total length of 2,428 km from Paris to many cities (and also the destination of each leg) such as Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Bordeaux and Nantes and then return to Paris.

There are many holidays between the stages. This race has fascinated the audience from 1903 to the present, except during World War 1 (from 1915 to 1918) and World War 2 (from 1940 to 1946). The race has been successful and is held every year for 3 weeks of July with the race across France and neighboring countries.

Tour de France is considered the largest annual bicycle race in the world with millions of spectators watching. Held in France and neighboring countries, the race has fascinated the audience from 1903 to the present, except for the years when the tournament was suspended (not conducted from 1915 to 1918 and from 1940 to 1946).

Dreyfus was later vindicated and forgiven by France. Le Vélo was originally born to protest the article that supported Dreyfus to eventually close, unable to face the success of L’Auto and Tour de France.

In the early years, the riders were mostly French but within 10 years, the race attracted both international riders and satisfied audiences around the world.

Tour de France has been accused of fraud, vandalism and violence. In 1905, there were an estimated 125 kg of nails scattered on the road on the first leg. As a result, only 15 riders reached the finish line from over 60 people at the start.

In 1910, the race to witness the first fatal accident of Adolphe Hélière – who was electrocuted while swimming in Nice on a half-day break.

The tour de France is divided into several stages and each rider’s time is summed up daily to determine the final winner at the end of the day. Drivers who have accumulated time to complete the shortest course will be awarded the Golden Shirt Tour de France the next day.

The idea of ​​the yellow vest was developed by 19-year-old editor Henri Desgrange – head of the race organization – in 1919, L’Auto newspaper was also printed on yellow paper. Since then, the yellow shirt has inspired the songs, movies, books and the desire of the riders.

3 biggest motor racing events in the world

Currently, there are many world motor racing competitions held for different types of cars to determine the reputation and success of the participating automakers. Motorbike racing has become a sport in which riders are trained very strictly and seriously, and the quality of each bike will be shown in these races.

Motocross

The world of Motocross (or MX) is similar to other motorbike races, but the biggest difference is the harsh off-road conditions. The closed-loop is built to challenge all riders including a mixture of dirt, sand, mud, and grass even simulating rough terrain. Because of the harsh conditions of the track, the attendees often focus on suspension, good suspension to meet the terrain. Motocross is also distinguished by the different awarding format, sometimes with extra prizes for riders who overcome certain challenges in the race. Of course, the driver who finishes first wins the championship within the allotted time or the number of laps depending on the way the race is organized.

Supercross

The world supercross motorcycle racing tournament is a variant of Motocross but held indoors. Often held in stadiums with a different race condition than the steering wheel technique. In North America, Supercross is very developed. However, in Europe, Motocross still dominates and people distinguish these two races by the way of organizing and temporarily calling Supercross to be held indoors and Motocross is outdoor.

Supermoto

The Supermoto world motorbike race is a mixed race combining asphalt and terrain. The type of motorbikes that participated in the race was mostly from the terrain of the Motocross. Due to the use of special terrain vehicles, so the technique of cornering is also very different, compared to other races such as MotoGP or Superbike, the commonly used cornering technique is the knee-lowering technique, but in Supermoto the driver will hug the crab with a straightened leg and use the car’s inertia to get a nice face.

Enduro

Enduro is a genre of off-road racing that focuses on challenging the durability of the vehicle and the driver. Normally each driver must complete a race of more than 10 miles (more than 15km) of terrain through the forest. The race will set many stages with the goal of completing within a certain time, and there will be penalties if done earlier or late, so the punctuality factor is most important. A standard race usually takes place within 3-4 hours, some other races take a longer time. In national or international tournaments, the race can take place for many days, the maintenance of vehicles is strictly controlled during the race to ensure fairness.

Hamilton won the F1 race for the 6th time

Lewis Hamilton won the championship for the fifth time in a row after the 19th race in the US in this year’s Formula 1 (F1) Championship on January 3 (local time) to reach the title record of the legendary Michael Schumacher.

At the Grand Prix, Hamilton did not have a complete celebration when finishing second after teammate Valtteri Bottas in the Mercedes team. However, with Bottas himself 67 points (381 compared to 314) on the driver’s table, Hamilton soon won the championship before two races (each win had 25 points).

This is the sixth F1 world title of the 34-year-old British racer after 2008, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018. This impressive achievement helps Hamilton to close to the record of German legend Schumacher, who was the F1 champion 7 times. Hamilton’s brilliance also helped the Mercedes racing team continue to dominate the F1 racing village as the 6th consecutive season champion.

Hamilton parked his Mercedes in the reserved for champions area before jumping into the arms of family and friends. “I could not believe it, thank you very much. Today’s tough race is really hard. Valtteri (Bottas) did very well. As an athlete, I feel that I’m enjoying the happiness of winning the championship. We will continue until the end of the season”, Hamilton said happily after the fifth time dominating F1.

Meanwhile, although sharing the joy with his excellent teammate, Bottas said he did not give up to head to the highest position in F1 racing. “My father told me when I was six or seven I never gave up and that was the family motto. I personally have failed my goal this year, but Lewis deserves it. He has had a good season”, the Finnish driver shared after the fourth time on the top podium this season.

Hamilton’s joy was also frustrated by Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari. After dominating F1 racing village with 4 consecutive championships (from 2010 to 2013), the German driver is considered a force to move towards the records of compatriot Schumacher. But since then, Vettel has been decelerating when looking at his crowned rival Hamilton.

After the US race, this year’s F1 will continue with the last 2 races in Brazil and UAE.
