Like the premier MotoGP class, the 2013 Moto3 title hunt came down to the wire. Actually, it came down to the last lap at the season finale in Valencia.This is when Team Calvo’s Maverick Vinales – who moves to Moto2 in 2014 – won the race ahead of Jonas Folger and title-rival Alex Rins. It was only Vinales third victory of the 2013 Moto3 Championship, and first win since Le Mans, but due to his podium finishes, he earned the title.As for the other rider in the title hunt – Red Bull AJO’s Luis Salom – he crashed out earlier in the race, eventually finishing 14th. He entered the season finale as the standings leader.Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) missed out in the final stages as Viñales made his move, with German Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3 rider Folger coming through for second place on the final straight. If he stays in Moto3 next year Rins will surely get another title shot.Jack Miller (Caretta Technology – RTG) also hit the deck in the final stages when fighting for a podium finish.Alex Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0) finished fourth and again showed why he should be a regular podium and victory contender in 2014, whilst Efren Vazquez (Mahindra Racing) finished in the top five, having started tenth.The top 10 for the final race of the season was completed by Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold), Isaac Viñales (Ongetta-Centro Seta), Ana Carrasco (Team Calvo), Philipp Oettl (Interwetten Paddock Moto3) and Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing).Niklas Ajo walked away from a high speed crash at turn 3, whilst Livio Loi hit the deck on lap 14 after clashing with Francesco Bagnaia and John Mcphee was also unable to finish the race following an early accident.

Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
