Dear MCN reader,

I really thought we might see Marc Marquez achieve the almost unimaginable at MotorLand Aragon. He looked dangerously sharp throughout the weekend, and narrowly missing out during qualifying was only going to increase the spectacle as he inevitably tried to scythe through the 12 riders ahead of him as the grid launched into T1.

By the time the second corner was disappearing out of view it seemed we really might see him pull off the ultimate coup. His start was as explosive as you’d expect from an on-form, break-free, Marquez. But that impressive start soon turned into breath-holding fear for Quartararo as his own bike clouted him down the asphalt like a badly struck croquet ball. Only Marquez could spark such drama.

But while the haters will always provide a vocally negative narrative, there’s no doubt that MotoGP needs MM93. Whether you’re a fan, or see him as a pantomime villain, he brings a brand of explosive volatility that makes the spectacle more vibrant.But as Pecco Bagnaia closes the gap to Fabio Quartararo to a tantalizing 10 points while being bested (or ‘Beasted’) over the line by Enea Bastianini, it begs the question: Is it time for team orders at Ducati?

In addition to your normal full-to-bursting edition of MCN, we’ve got two special supplements for you this week, too. First up is out Top 40 Hottest Used Bikes buyer’s guide, with top tips and advice for what to buy, and how to get the best deal. And as if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also created a special security supplement to help you ensure you bike remains yours – with expert advice, tips and products to help you beat bike crime.

Enjoy the ride,
