Suomy world in the year 2017.


Dovizioso Win Motegi 2017

A very fierce race reopens the conditions for a fight at the top of the World Championship

In a rainy weekend the Italian rider starts on the right foot and, with a good set-up, he finds the best technical conditions to race at the top ranking. At the start, despite the slippery japanese track, Dovizioso regains four positions during the first lap to keep his place right behind Marquez and Lorenzo. During the 14th lap, the Suomy rider takes advantage of Petrucci for the second position.
Six laps to the end, the Italian launches an important overtake on Marquez that lets expect a fantastic fight: with a series of overtakes and very late braking, the two riders create one of the most exciting battle of the season that will decree Dovizioso as the winner only during the last turn, thanks to a masterpiece overtake. In this extreme weather condition the SR-Sport helmet, used by the Ducati champion, performs a crucial service: despite the rain sprayed by the bikes during the overtakes, the visor doesn’t steam up, thanks to the good ventilation and the anti-fog treatment.
