MotoGP 2013 Live Season

This is the first time in history that three MotoGP races will held in USA and the latest addition to the established circuits in United States is the Austin MotoGP at the circuit of Americas which will held on 21 April 2013 and the local hero Nicky Hayden will be looking to do something special in front of his home crowd, although he had a poor first race of the season in Qatar.

2013 Austin MotoGP has been hyped as the race for the Americans and there is no doubt about it as there will be atleast 5 americans races fighting for the top spot and leading the pack is Nicky Hayden and it will be great event and we can expect some huge crowd throughout the race weekend starting with the first practice session on Friday morning.

Hype is leading towards the american riders but Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi will go into the race as hot favourites and both of them finished first and 2nd respectively in the opening race of the season in Qatar couple of weeks ago.
