MotoGP 2020 race calendar

MotoGP has belatedly kick-started the 2020 season with a reorganised, jam-packed calendar of races for fans to enjoy throughout the year.

The sport took an unprecedented break due to the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, but like many other major events around the world, a ‘new normal’ has been struck in order to begin proceedings.

Dominant champion Marc Marquez triumphed in 2019 with an astonishing record of 11 victories, but he suffered a horror fall in the first weekend, resulting in a broken arm that has crushed at least the start of his season.

Yamaha have pounced on Marquez’s absence by occupying five of the six podium spots on offer from the first two weekends.

Fabio Quartararo has won both the Spanish Grand Prix and Andalusian Grand Prix while Maverick Vinales finished second in both.

The legendary Valentino Rossi scored a podium last time out, while Ducati star Andrea Dovizioso is the only non-Yamaha rider to celebrate in the top three.

British ace Cal Crutchlow also suffered disappointment after fracturing his wrist during a warm-up crash on the opening weekend but he is now back in action and raring to go.

Check out the full updated 2020 MotoGP season calendar below, including key dates, how to watch and more.
