MotoGP fans watched a thrilling and unexpected finish to the third stop in the 2019 premier globetrotting motorcycle series this past weekend.
Known as the Horsepower Rodeo, in honor of the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas’ visit to Texas, this year saw a break in his Circuit of the Americas’ winning streak for five-time world champion Marc Marquez. The Spaniard’s crash gave an opening to his 23-year-old countryman Alex Rins, who took his first MotoGP win ahead of Italy’s ever-popular Valentino Rossi.
