2017 Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas Recap

A weekend spent at Circuit of The Americas® is a weekend well spent. We headed down to Austin for the 2017 Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas to watch MotoGP™’s most skilled riders compete for the Americas Grand Prix title. To no surprise, Marc Marquez came out on top to claim his 5th straight win in Texas.

Leading into the weekend Marquez, Vinales and Rossi were the riders to watch and they certainly put on a show. Intense competition was a major theme between the three and an early crash by Vinales left Rossi, Marquez, and Spaniard Dani Pedrosa battle it out for the finish.

Pedrosa took an early lead, but with the skill and persistence of Marquez he took the lead with several laps left and lead the race from there on out.
