The riders return to the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on Sunday for the second race of a double-header on the circuit following last Sunday's San Marino MotoGP. Don't miss a single lap with our guide to getting an Emilia Romagna MotoGP 2020 live stream.

Last Sunday's race saw Franco Morbidelli cross the line in first to become the fourth different first-time winner in this championship. The result saw Fabio Quartararo lose his lead at the top of the championship after suffering two crashes, with veteran racer Andrea Dovizioso now leading with a six-point advantage following his seventh place finish on Sunday.

With just 20 points now separating the top seven racers, it's shaping up to be the most open MotoGP season ever.

With another new leader at the top of the MotoGP championship, will new front-runner Dovizioso maintain his advantage after Misano II? Read on as we explain below how to get a MotoGP live stream for this week's Emilia Romagna MotoGP.
