Dear friends, we knew that sooner or later, even by 2019, this moment was going to arrive. With the placings of Alex Rins, Remy Gardner, Enea bastianini and Aron Canet, the MotoGP World Championship ends in Valencia and it's time to say goodbye. The MotoGP circus stores another year of entertainment, joys, sorrows, sacrifices and satisfactions, and leaves everyone to dream of the season to come.
Although the tests have already started, what interests us most is racing ... and our guys is what we care about.
The Nolangroup riders were all great. Among confirmations, new discoveries, new comebacks and someone who will be leaving the scene.
Among the friends who have written some important pages of history with us, even if they have recently made other choices, we say goodbye to Jorge Lorenzo, who decided to change his life after 17 years in the world championship and some world titles with Nolangroup. Sometimes the streets separate but somehow the beautiful memories still keep us united and that's why Lorenzo will always remain in our hearts.
We wish him the best and we wish all of our customers a safe winter and the discovery of our products.
We work for you, don't forget it, and therefore, for anything, we are always available!
Alex Rins FIFTH
"For sure, this year has been really good, I was fighting for 3rd in the championship. I tried hard today to take back 3rd in the standings, and I was able to beat Viñales who was my nearest rival for that. I was battling with Dovizioso right up to finish line, but it was very difficult to pass him. Let’s keep working and prepare for the new season!"
Enea Bastianini FOURTEENTH
"It was a difficult race, I was expecting another step, but after a few laps I lost the lead with the leading group and I couldn't go back. Too bad, I was hoping to close at least in the top ten. However, I am motivated for the tests and for next year, I can't wait to get started!"
Remy Gardner FIFTEENTH
"Friday was the worst day of the year. We had big vibrations with the bike which was something to do with the clutch. The team identified the issue and I gave it my all in qualifying, but it was another tough day. It was like starting from zero on a Saturday which is not ideal, but the main thing was that we made into Q2. Unfortunately in the race things didn’t improve and I couldn’t move forward. It’s a shame to end year like this, especially with the speed we have shown but that’s racing and I know the team and I will come back stronger in 2020! Massive thanks to everyone who has supported me, here’s to next year."
Sergio Garcia FIRST
"Winning, and especially doing it at home, is a feeling that cannot be described. It was a very closely contested race. The stoppage and restart hindered us a little, because the wind was rising more and more, but the bike worked very well throughout the race and I gave everything I had until the end. The last lap was incredible, as I pushed my hardest on each corner to defend my position and be able to overtake Migno at the end. On the final descent I saw that I had a chance at victory, and I took it. I want to thank everyone who has supported me, my family and my team."
