Dovizioso fishing in troubled river

Today was another Sunday on wheels. With the Dauphiné in the Alps, Formula 1 in Montmeló ... and the rugged and unpredictable MotoGP World Championship in Austria.


It was a Sunday on wheels, another one. MotoGP in Austria, Dauphiné in the Alps and Formula 1 in Montmeló, in that chronological order. Not even in cycling the prognosis that marked the reason was fulfilled: a cascade of falls and injuries during the weekend prevented the Jumbo-Ineos and Roglic-Bernal duel. Not even in F1 the desire that marked the heart was fulfilled: Max Verstappen could not squeeze Lewis Hamilton again and he did enough to finish second. At the same time, there are no possible pools on motorcycles, because the void left by Marc Márquez opens up an infinite range of alternatives. Andrea Dovizioso, three-time runner-up, finally took advantage of the absence of his rival on a circuit in line with Ducati, the Red Bull Ring, just the day after announcing his departure from home.

Dovizioso fished in the troubled river of a very bumpy race, which left an image that goes beyond the podium, that chilling fall of Johann Zarco and Franco Morbidelli that caused more impression for what could be than for what it really was. His two bikes were thrown uncontrollably and were about to hit other riders. Valentino Rossi was born again. They were not the only mishaps in the race. They were also suffered by Álex Rins, Pol Espargaró, Miguel Oliveira, Fabio Quartararo, Maverick Viñales… The experienced Dovi survived this endless list of incidents and found himself with victory in the same scenario where he conquered the last one. Spielberg is Ducati territory and next week he repeats appointment. The Italian, who rises to second place, thus re-engages in a World Cup that deflates Quartararo, who has dropped his performance after his two initial victories. Nobody is capable of raising the flag of candidate number one. Meanwhile, Marc posts photos watching the races from home. Will you be back in time to place order?
