The week in review

9th to 15th November

The FIM Motocross World Championship 2020 crowned their world champion on Wednesday with Tim Gajser of Slovenia taking the honours. It was sealed in the second-of-three races hosted at Pietramurata in Italy. Gajser is currently leading the table on 673 points, 89 points clear of Antonio Cairoli of Italy. There is one more race on Sunday to complete the season. Last weekend we had the remaining matches of the Six Nations. Ireland had the best position on the table, but eventually lost their match against France giving England the title after their bonus-point win over Italy. Further rugby union news is that the Autumn Eight Nation tournament of Europe starts on Friday. Tennis legend Rafael Nadal also completed a major milestone by winning his 1,000th ATP tour win on Wednesday at the Paris Masters. He is the fourth player in history to achieve this. Nadal will no doubt feature at the Nitto ATP Finals starting in London next Sunday. 

Antalya is regarded as the tourist capital of Turkey and often hosts various sports events. This week the coastal city hosts the European Youth Chess Championship and the European Pool Billiards Championship covering six categories. Over to golf and the world famous Augusta National Golf Club will host the best golfers in the world for The Masters. The major is the final of the year after the tournament was postponed as a result of the various lockdowns. In cricket Zimbabwe complete their short tour of Pakistan on Tuesday, while England are preparing their limited-overs tour to South Africa starting in the third week of November. Formula One heads to Istanbul next weekend, while Endurance Racing will be in Bahrain for the final event of the season. MotoGP is in Spain for tomorrow's race and next Sunday. There are only three races remaining of the season with the top of the table very congested. Tomorrow is also the final day of La Vuelta. 

There are a wide variety of events this week and we hope we have listed everything for you. Until next time, have a great sporting week!
