Marc Marquez did not quite lead from start to finish. Here's the only part where he was behind


Clutch issues meant Rossi had to push too hard, something the Michelin front would not accept readily


Blue bikes rising. Aleix headed Maverick, until Maverick finally struck


The riders refer to the section from Turn 3 to Turn 10 "The Flip Flops"

When Romano Fenati is on it, he's unbeatable


28 into Turn 1 does go. Just


The King of America returns after win number 10

The only other time Marquez did not lead the race: briefly on the brakes, going into Turn 1

Still gunning for glory

Dovi, in a battle with his teammate for the second seat at Ducati


Too tall? Tell that to Loris Baz


Big air


#99, Smooth as butter


Bradley Smith radically altered the set up on his Tech 3 Yamaha. He needed to, and it paid off

The next big thing


Gray skies mean clear visors, which means Aleix Espargaro's intense stare shows


Pol Espargaro has had the best of the Tech 3 battle so far


If you want to win, you have to beat him

Work to do for Dani too


Eye on the prize
