Sadly John’s 2013 season came to a premature end with a crash early on in the Gran Premio De La Comunitat Valencia at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo, Cheste.

Starting from 16th on the grid, John was battling with Brad Binder for 14th when he fell on lap 9.
Fellow RTG teammate Jack Miller also crashed out, as did title contender Luis Salom – leaving Maverick Viñales and Alex Rins slugging it out at the front of the field, with Aspar’s Jonas Folger getting in the mix too.

In the end – after a tight battle it was Maverick Viñales how came home first, taking the 2013 Moto3 title in the process. Jonas Folger finished the race in second, Alex Rins in third.
