2013 Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix Video

Without a doubt, the most exciting part of the 2013 Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca was Marc Marquez’s lap-four pass on Valentino Rossi at the legendary Corkscrew.

The 20-year-old MotoGP rookie showed up the 34-year-old icon, just as Rossi famously did to the Casey Stoner (Ducati) with a similar pass back in 2008.

The Repsol Honda rider Marquez, riding like a seasoned veteran, then patiently stocked the leader LCR Honda’s Stefan Bradl. And on lap 19 of 32, Marquez made a clean pass on the German.

Marquez led the rest of the MotoGP, eventually finishing 2.2 seconds ahead of Bradl. Taking the final podium position was nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi on the Yamaha Factory Racing YZR-M1.

The top five was completed by GO&FUN HOnda Gresini’s Alvaro Bautista and Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedorsa, who rode after missing Sachsenring last week due to a left shoulder injury. The other rider who has been recovering from a left shoulder injury sustained in a crashes at Assen and Sachsenring, Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jorge Lorenzo finished sixth.

Attached below are video highlights of Laguna Seca MotoGP, including the already famous Marquez pass on Rossi at the Corkscrew. For a review of the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, including full results and current point standings, click here.
