In tribute to the late, great Nicky Hayden, who passed away in 2017, the number 69 will be retired from Grand Prix racing at the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas. The “Kentucky Kid” rode 69 to the crown and MotoGP Legend status during an impressive career that saw him leave an indelible mark on the sport and the paddock.

Marc Márquez and Jorge Lorenzo were joined by Repsol Honda Team legends Mick Doohan and Alex Crivillé to launch their rider-line up and livery for 2019, as well as celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Repsol Honda Team.

HJC Helmets have reached an agreement with Cal Crutchlow to become his official helmet sponsor for 2019 and 2020 in the MotoGP World Championship.
Cal has been a permanent fixture on the MotoGP grid since 2011 and the British rider continues his relationship with Team LCR Honda in 2019 after celebrating three podiums in 2018 including a victory in Argentina. Unfortunately, an injury sustained in Australia excluded Cal from the final three races of the season.

Ducati's Danilo Petrucci topped the timesheets on Day 1 at the Jerez Test after setting a 1:37.968 in the afternoon, heading teammate Andrea Dovizioso – the 04 Italian crashing at Turn 5 late in the day – by 0.217 seconds.
LCR Honda's Takaaki Nakagami finished third on the timesheets, with just 0.380 splitting the top three.
