Cormac Shoots The Sachsenring: MotoGP Majestic Among The Rolling German Greenery - Part 1

A view which Maverick Viñales' rivals are having to get used to, now the Yamaha rider has worked out the issues he had at the start of the season

All gone green - the Sachsenring is very picturesque, especially the north side of the track, at the top of the hill as the riders flash through Turn 11

A graphic illustration of Ducati's woes. All three GP19s finished together in Germany. The bike needs to turn better

Up the hill from the final corner and along the main straight. Miguel Oliveira leads Alex Rins against a backdrop of houses, farms, and fields

Dark days for Johann Zarco at KTM.

While Maverick Viñales and Fabio Quartararo are a serious threat on the Yamaha, Valentino Rossi is still looking for the final piece of the setup puzzle

Jack attack: Miller is ever more competitive on the GP19, and is crossing the i's and dotting the t's on a contract for 2020

Up, down, and over, all on the side of the bike. That's the Sachsenring in a nutshell

Sure, it makes for great photos, but despite being asked not to, some fans lit flares while the race was on. Stupid and dangerous

Alex Rins is arguably the second best rider on the MotoGP grid at the moment. Or at least he would be if he could stop falling off

Love these photos (and previous series, too), especially the perspective (if that's the right word.). Do those flare-lighting fans get tossed?

I believe what you meant is dotting the i's and crossing the t's.

So glad to see Rins, Miller, Oliveira (and Binder for next year) fighting in the premiere class. They were shining in the lower classes and I really hope to see them fighting for podiums in the near future.

Bag searches for us punters going into most circuits. At three out of three of the most recent MotoGp events I've attended there have been "security" people rumaging through my backpack. So how do the red & Giallo Idiots smuggle these pyrotechnical devices in? How do they get away with such stupid stinking antics? MotoGp/Dorna run their Adverts saying don't do the stupid smoke flare stuff, But no action is taken??? Nobody gets arrested or thrown out, what is with that?

This is not part of motorcycle racing! I for one would prefer no more smoke flares.

What do you reckon?

Thanks for the awesome pix Cormac
