I’m not excited that the new season of MotoGP is about to start because this year, MotoGP will not be coming to Laguna Seca, which means I will not see Valentino Rossi. The race at the Losail Circuit in Qatar marks the beginning of the first race of the season out of 18 total. I know that Valentino Rossi is going to try to win the tenth championship of his career, just one premier championship away from meeting Giacomo Agostini’s record. He came in fourth place last year, so I know he will finish Top 3 this year.
