This year MotoGP will have a total of 21 rounds. Despite not being a record, there are two more distant trips – one to Kazakhstan and another to India, which leaves the end-of-season Asian phase with seven rounds in nine weeks.
Alex Rins was asked to comment on this busy schedule and, quoted by the Crash.net website, he did not hide that it will be more arduous due to the time spent away from home. In any case, he was enthusiastic about discovering new destinations:
– Well, my wife is going to change the locks with this calendar and the new races in Kazakhstan and India! But, no, joke aside, it’s good to discover new locations, new tracks. It will be harder for sure because we’ll be away from home more [time], but it looks good.
