Scott Jones 2014 Retrospective: Part 1 - Qatar

Class of '14

Old man? Maybe, but he keeps getting faster

Just a few weeks after breaking his leg, Marc Marquez made his intentions all too clear at Qatar

Herding cats takes a very particular skill

Few had Tito Rabat as their favorite for the 2014 Moto2 title at Qatar. That would change

Gigi Dall'Igna would bring real change at Ducati

While Silvano Galbusera made a big difference to Valentino Rossi

It would be a long year at Ducati for Cal Crutchlow

24 liters of fuel for the Open bikes livened things up a bit

Qatar: as the sun sets, a roar fills the night sky

A taste of things to come. Jack Miller and Alex Marquez would scrap for the Moto3 title all the way to Valencia

The MotoGP race at Qatar turned into a war of attrition. Stefan Bradl crashed out of the lead, just as Jorge Lorenzo had.

A time for regrets

Jorge Lorenzo simmered with rage at Qatar, unable to get to grips with the new Bridgestone rear

After a season of disgruntled comments about bike set up, Mike Leitner would leave Dani Pedrosa's side

Change came often to the Ducati GP14, though the revolution was forced to wait

Intensity: Alex Marquez has it

2014 would not be the year Nicky Hayden had intended

The calm before the storm

We knew Maverick Viñales was good, but just missing out on a podium at the first attempt was a sign of something more than good
