The GP America MotoGP 2023 race, held at a renowned track in the United States, saw Alex Rins take the top spot on the podium. Rins, who rides for the Honda LCR team, clinched his win with a time record of 0:41:14.649, outpacing some of the best riders in the world.
Francesco Bagnaia, riding for Ducati, secured pole position and quickly established himself as the leader of the race. However, disaster struck when Bagnaia’s bike went down, leaving him unable to continue. Rins, who had been following Bagnaia in second place since the beginning of the race, seized the opportunity to take the lead and never looked back.
Luca Marini took second place and collected 34 championship points, while Fabio Quartararo finished third. Marco Bezzecchi, the last race champion, finished in fourth place.
The race saw a total of 13 laps to go, with Bagnaia’s unfortunate fall changing the dynamics of the competition. After taking the lead, Rins was able to hold off stiff competition from Quartararo and Marini to claim the win.
The current MotoGP standings show Bezzecchi in the lead with 64 points, followed by Bagnaia with 53 points, and Rins in third place with 47 points.
After the race, Rins expressed his delight with the win, saying, “It was amazing. When I was in the LCR workshop this winter, Lucio put a video on in the museum and said we have 99 podiums in our team, and I said, ‘Thanks for the pressure!’ We did it. I’m so happy about the win, and also happy about the weekend, a really good weekend.” Media Source: MotoGP.com
