Oliveira wins Indonesia’s MotoGP tournament, crash big Marquez, Bendsneider takes point in moto 2 | other sports

Due to heavy rain, the race started over an hour later. It happened without six-time world champion Marc Marquez, who fell hard during the warm-up rounds. At a speed of 180 kilometers per hour, the Spaniard landed firmly on his left arm, after which he also hit his head on the asphalt. The Marquez woke up again, and was taken to the hospital where it became clear that the engagement was no longer the case.

The 29-year-old had already fallen twice during qualifying on Saturday. Therefore, the Honda driver will only start from 14th place in the second race of the World Cup this year.

The race was shortened from 27 to 20 laps due to bad weather in Kuta. Quartararo started from pole position in Indonesia’s first MotoGP motorcycle race since 1997. Oliveira was behind Quartararo for some time, but when he overtook the Frenchman on the slowly drying runway of Lombok Road, he quickly went the distance. But it certainly wasn’t easy. “I was very focused,” said the emotional Portuguese, who won the Grand Prix for the fifth time. I promised my daughter that I would bring a cup from Indonesia. This is for her.”

Bo Bendsneyder won his first World Cup point at the Indonesian Grand Prix in the Moto2 class. Rotterdam finished in 15th, starting from 5th on the grid. Bendsneyder started the season with 19th place in the Qatar GP. Two weeks earlier, he had broken his collarbone in a fall.

The win at the Kuta Circuit was in favor of Thailand’s Sumkyat Shantra, who kept Italy’s Celestino Fetti and Spain’s Aaron Kaneh at the back. Feti, the winner in Qatar, leads the standings. Dutch 16-year-old Zonta van den Gorberg finished 23rd. He started from 25th.
