I Ride: Triiumph Tiger XCx 800 + KTM SXF450sm + 511SMR
Effect Of New Schedule On Championship

Thus far the race destinations are as follows.

7 races in Spain
2 in Austria
2 in Italy
I in Czech Republic
1 in France

1 in Argentina *
1 in Thailand *
1 in Malaysia *
1 In USA *


* To be confirmed after July 31st

If the final 4 are confirmed it would only be 2 races less than last year.

No races in Germany, China, Japan, Australia, Japan or UK.
With Marquez out for an undermined period, and totally revised travel logistics, and teams having already dialed in the bikes at tracks already raced at in the 2020 season, there's going to be a whole lot of new unpredicticability factors. Should be a memorable year.

Wondering how they will reduce expenses to adjust for no ticket sales.

MotoGP's official account has posted on Instagram to say Marc Marquez riding at Jerez this weekend is a possibility.

I wouldn't be surprised that if there's the hint of a chance, that he gives it a go on Day 1 to see how it feels. Crazy!

Totally nuts! It's great that he wants it so bad, but ffs - to race that soon after that much trauma. I really hope he rethinks this
and takes time to heal. All that gutsy quick return to racing after surgery stuff didn't pan out well for Dani. Of course, Marquez
is bigger and stronger, but he's still human . . . barely.
