The Sachsenring race weekend contained a lot of crashes and a lot of spectacular imagery to illustrate what a flying MotoGP rider looks like for those who missed practice, where much of the action happened.
My favourite image has not got a rider in mid-air, but is instead an image of the current championship bucking bronco of a ride- the Ducati – in action, and it was the fancy new prototype bike that Dovizioso saw off at the beginning of the weekend. It’s position in the sky suggests why.
I made it my feature image as it conjures up thoughts of great conversations in the Ducati camp:
Dovi: Look Nicky, I can go higher than yooooooou!
Hayden: But Y’all meant to go straight not up!
Back in the Garage…
Hayden: Please tell me you didn’t give him the fancy new one…
*Ducati mechanics shuffle while staring at feet*
Though the funniest image of the weekend came via Moto3 rider Luis Salom and the marshals deckchair, which you can see here – If you can’t beat them.. have a sit down!
Laguna Seca is this weekend so get well soon to Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo, Andrea Iannone and those who rode through the pain – Hector Barbera, Cal Crutchlow, Xavier Simeon, Tito Rabat (Moto2 wasn’t exempt from pain) did I miss anyone off? So many crashes!
