MotoGP » MOTOGP QUIZ: 2013 Mid-Season Challenge

While some very battered and bruised (and in some cases broken!) MotoGP riders put their feet up with a well-earned August extended break between US rounds at Laguna Seca and Indianapolis, there's a chance for us to review the events of the 2013 season so far. We've seen a return to Yamaha and to winning ways for Valentino Rossi, two serious accidents for his team-mate Jorge Lorenzo that Honda's Dani Pedrosa hasn't been able to properly capitalise on, due to a shoulder injury of his own, a fantastic rookie performance so far from Marc Márquez and an eye-catching season for Cal Crutchlow.

Lots to cover in the Mid-Season Quiz Challenge, then, so let's not waste time but instead get you straight into the ten questions covering all nine events of the MotoGP championship to date. To fully benefit from the cerebral workout, best if you steer clear of Google, Wikipedia and's news archives at least first time through. And don't forget to let us know how you did via the comments feedback section!

Ready to go? The first question is right here ....

Question 1. Since returning to the Yamaha fold following his ill-fated stint at Ducati, how many times has Valentino Rossi now finished on the podium so far in 2013?
  Question 1 of 10
