MotoGP In The Sun

It does not happen very often, but this years British MotoGP was in some serious sunshine. I got a bit too much sun and currently resemble a lobster.

Rossi led from the start for most of the race, Marquez had an engine failure, Dovi stole the lead a few laps from the end to take the lead in the Championship. A great days racing in all three classes.

Nicky Hayden

Nicky Hayden, 2006 MotoGP World Champion and one of the nicest blokes around, passes away after a cycling accident.

I have been fortunate enough to see him race all over Europe since 2003. He will be missed.

220mph on a MotoGP bike, easy.
Cycling in Italy, too damn dangerous.

MotoGP Is Back!

MotoGP returns this weekend, can’t wait for the first race on Sunday evening from Losail. It has been a long winter with no racing to watch, drives me nuts!

New kid to watch this year is Maverick Vinales on the M1 Yamaha, he has just moved to the works Yamaha team and has been fasted in just about every test session over the last few months.

Championship contender? We will see after a few more races, but I reckon so.
