The provisional 2019 calendar has now been released and you can check it out below. There are 19 races and no new tracks, but there’s plenty to look forward to.
We’ve already had news about the preseason test dates and there are plenty of headlines waiting in the wings, not least Jorge Lorenzo’s (Ducati Team) switch to Repsol Honda at the end of the year. And the fireworks will begin early as the five-time World Champion is allowed to test with Honda from Valencia.
We have the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup beginning next year, too, and Triumph come in as the official Moto2 engine supplier - setting us up for a season to remember in every class.
So without further ado, here it is - your provisional 2019 calendar!
