The official MotoGP™ Season Review 2013 celebrates its tenth year, taking you on a journey through a season that has offered so much to the motorcycle-racing enthusiast. Look back to a thrilling season that saw World Champion Marc Marquez notch up lots of firsts, including breaking all the records for being the youngest to win races, set poles and fastest laps, and just about anything else you can think of. Marquez was the first rookie to win the World Championship since Freddie Spencer in 1978. Marquez clinched the title at home, at the final round, in front of a wildly enthusiastic full house.
Jorge Lorenzo fought a magnificent rearguard action against Marquez and the Honda, doing things with the Yamaha that none of that factory's other riders could emulate. The championship ambitions of the third Spaniard, Dani Pedrosa, were once more thwarted by injury and bad luck.

All this is detailed in the 2013 edition of the MotoGP™ Season Review, with each MotoGP race report covering eight pages, including a data spread that presents qualifying times, race results, championship positions, lap records and what happened to every rider in the race.
As well as the race coverage, there is the usual in-depth technical analysis of the bikes, complete with magnificent studio images that show them in close detail. The factory machines each have two pages, while a page is provided for each bike in the CRT category. The Riders' Rider of the Year feature allows the MotoGP riders themselves to vote for the best riders of the year.
For this tenth edition of the MotoGP™ Season Review, Julian Ryder once again provides the race reports, Neil Spalding the technical analysis, and Mat Oxley the overview of the season. Every page benefits from the stunning photography of Andrew Northcott, the long-time photographer for the MotoGP™ Season Review.
The MotoGP™ Season Review 2013 is the must-have record, chronicling the on- and off-track action and excitement of the 2013 season.
