In Valencia this weekend, fans the world over will enjoy a final-race decider for the first time in seven years. On the last occasion of such an occurrence, a Repsol Honda Team rider claimed his first World Championship by beating the previous title winner, who happened to be riding for Yamaha Factory Racing.

The last time was 2006. Honda’s Nicky Hayden, who in the previous round had been taken out of action by rookie teammate Dani Pedrosa, claimed the ultimate honor in the most unbelievable of circumstances as Valentino Rossi made a rare mistake. Seven years on, more drama is certain as Marc Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo go head-to-head at the climax of a magical season. The amazing newcomer up against the hard-charging seasoned campaigner and two-time World Champion.

Three unquestionable talents in their own rights. Luis Salom, Maverick Viñales and Alex Rins have ensured an extremely closely-fought title battle in 2013. Curiously, each one will have arrived at next weekend’s Valencia title-decider in their own imitable way.

The plot:

Something that happens rarely in the World Championship. Three riders, three completely different styles and three different methods of overcoming adversity. So it’s three riders, five points between them and one race to go.

Seven years have passed by since Valencia last hosted a final-race decider. In 2013, two candidates arrive separated by 13 points.

It’s the reigning champion against the 20-year-old upstart. It’s Yamaha Factory Racing versus Repsol Honda Team. It’s Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez. And, of course, it’s 99 versus 93. There are more than six numbers between them, though.
