MotoGP race reportEdit

It was the first Dutch TT held on Sunday, instead of the traditional Saturday date for the race. Geert Timmer chicane was altered removing the artificial turf and replacing it with higher kerbing.[4] This race marked the first MotoGP class race since the 2006 Portuguese Grand Prix won by a non-factory team and the first race since the 2013 Americas Grand Prix in which all classes won by a new winner. Yamaha's podium streak record was ended for the first time since 2014 Dutch TT. It was also the 250th MotoGP race.
