How to watch the MotoGP Valencia live and free in Australia
Italy's Francesco Bagnaia's charge to the MotoGP title is almost complete as we head to Valencia.
Heading into the final race of the season, the Valencia MotoGP, Francesco Bagnaia's claim on the title is almost in the book save for a calamity.
Bagnaia has dominated the second half of this MotoGP season, picking up points at will and finally sweeping past defending champion Fabio Quartararo.
The Italian Bagnaia leads by 23 points with a maximum of 25 on offer for the winner.
Effectively, Quartararo would need to win the race and have his rival go near pointless to secure back-to-back crowns.
When is the Valencia MotoGP?
The Grand Prix of Valencia will be held at Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana Ricardo Tormo in Spain from Friday 4 November until Sunday 6 November.
The main race kicks off on Sunday 6 November at 11:30pm AEDT.

MotoGP Valencia race preview
A seventh win of the season in Malaysia last race has all but locked away the title for Italy's Francesco Bagnaia.
To relinquish the crown, he would need to finish worse than 14th in this race with Quartararo winning, something he has done only 3 times this season for comparison.
Aleix Espargaró appeared to have 3rd placed locked away a few weeks ago but is now under the pump from Enea Bastianini with the gap at just 1 point.
Aussie Jack Miller sits 5th, having finished the season strongly in the last couple of months.
Miller would love to push his points beyond 200 (now 189) and we think he can do that.
But at the top of the tree, the title will be heading to Italy.
