MotoGP: Image of the GP – look, I can fly!

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 can fly! Andrea Dovizioso’s factory Ducati tries flying, turns out to be an expensive experiment.

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…

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!
