Jorge Lorenzo will retire after Valencia race, this sunday. With 68 victories (47 in MotoGP class), one 125 World Championship, one 250 World Championship and 3 MotoGP World Championships, Jorge will be crowned MotoGP Legend in Jerez 2020. He used to say “I am not a good rider, I am a champion”. Well, Jorge… you are. And you will be truly missed by everyone who loves this sport, no matter what. Wish you all the best in life.

ROUND 7 OF RATING THE RIDERS: 2019 CATALAN GP
MM93 – 10: For that race only, Jorge has been added to the thanks list at the end of Marc’s title winning speech.
MV12 – 3: His anger & frustration were obvious but come on Mack, the middle finger is too much of a low point for you to do it. You’re better than that.
FQ20 – 9: Pole on Saturday, Podium on Sunday. The new Zarco is on fire.
DP9 – 8: It’s amazing how winning a race changes a man. Petrucci seems on a roll since his Italian GP win and could become one of the many key factor into this season’s title chase.
JL99 – 3: Sometimes, Sh*t happens. But kuddos to Jorge for taking the blame, apologizing and having made a step forward on the bike this weekend!
AR42 – 7: Not as present as during the first few races but still scoring important points.
AD04 – 4: I have seen a lot of “JL destroyed Dovizioso’s title chances with this crash” but let’s be honest here, there’s many races still to go. Like Nicky Hayden would say, anything can happen, that’s why they line up on Sunday.
VR46 – 4: Sometimes being the veteran makes you speak the truth. No animosity coming from Vale regarding Jorge’s bowling party was the highlight of my Sunday. Some of his so called fans asking for JL’s head on a pick in front of Tavullia tho, not so much.
