Morbidelli and Rins: underdogs to real contenders

It’s fair to say, especially before the first Aragon showdown, that both Morbidelli and Rins were outsiders. Not now though. But both have endured their fair share of bad luck in 2020 too. Rins’ injury in Jerez and Morbidelli’s involvement in the outrageously scary Red Bull Ring crash immediately spring to mind, with Morbidelli also having an engine failure in Jerez while on for a podium. Bad luck, yes. But this is bike racing and this is MotoGP™, luck – good and bad – is part of the game. The duo will probably rue certain things if the title is narrowly missed, but all they’ll be doing at this moment in time is looking ahead.
