While Quartararo’s still well ahead of the pack, Bagnaia’s two-race winning streak is starting to put a little pressure on the French favorite. However, Marc Marquez is the undisputed king of the Circuit of the Americas, so could we see the Spaniard display a well-deserved return to form? Read on as we explain how to watch all the Grand Prix of The Americas action online – no matter where you are – with our MotoGP live stream guide.
The American GP will be without Maverick Vinales due to the tragic loss of his cousin, Dean Berta Vinales, who was involved in a large crash in Spain last weekend. Subsequently, the motorcycle press is awash with safety reform discussion.
Despite his peerless record, Marquez should be ready to put up a fight at CotA, and may even have the slightly out-of-form Alex Rins biting at his heels – the only other rider on the grid that’s ever taken a win at the Texas track. But Quartararo could shake that all up, as we’ve only seen the rising star race once at the circuit, placing a respectable 7th in 2019.
So, there’s plenty to race for and this American MotoGP is by no means a given for any rider. Whoever you’re rooting for, though, all you need to do is follow our guide below as we explain how to watch Grand Prix of The Americas and get a MotoGP live stream from anywhere.
How to watch MotoGP from outside your country
If you find yourself abroad at all during the 2021 MotoGP season, you’ll likely find you’re unable to access your usual MotoGP coverage like you would at home. This isn’t necessarily cause for alarm, but rather the result of geo-blocking – best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to certain parts of the world.
Fortunately, there’s a convenient way around this in the form of a VPN. This is a nifty bit of software that lets you whizz around these digital borders, thereby allowing you to globe-trot and still access your preferred MotoGP live stream. It’s a completely legal workaround, very affordable, and super easy to use – allow us to explain more.
