As expected at the Austrian
Grand Prix Red Bull Ring, a track that suits the ‘Desmosedici’ like no

As the race began, it was Marquez
in the lead but then in a stunning move, Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) cut inside
second-placed Dovizioso and then took Marquez on the exit. The others who were
the front runners included Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) and his teammate
Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP).
Early retirements saw Pol
Espargaro of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing exiting after his rear brake was
damaged in an incident and Jonas Folger of Monster Yamaha Tech 3 also exiting. Later as the race progressed, it was a battle between
Lorenzo, Marquez and Dovizioso as the three machines were almost neck-and-neck.
Finally, as the race progressed,
Marquez and Dovizioso began to pull away as the two men fought it out until the
end. Lunging for the inside on the final corner and then sliding out just wide,
Marquez rode spectacularly but his Italian rival cut back inside to cross the
line for his third win of the year.
After the NeroGiardini
Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich, Marquez remains ahead on the road to
Silverstone, but it's now Dovizioso hot on his tail - 16 points adrift.
