MotoGPMatters Coming Live From Daytona!

As the spring equinox grows ever closer in the northern hemisphere, the wraps are starting to come off of racing motorcycles the world over. Last weekend saw the World Superbikes kick off down under at Phillip Island, and this week sees the traditional start of the American road racing season at Daytona Bike Week. The highlight this year will be the Daytona 200, to be raced under the lights for the first time.

Luckily for you, dear readers, is live and on the scene at Daytona. Ace photographer Scott Jones will once again be providing us with his glorious pictures, and honing his already considerable skills for the MotoGP opener in Qatar in April, which he will be covering for us. Scott will be joined by the man many of you will know as yooperbikemiike, whose acerbic wit and acute observations have graced many a bulletin board across the motorcycling world.

Although the AMA is tangential to the purpose of - after all, it will take a while for some of the names in the AMA to make it into the world series we cover - we just couldn't turn down the chance to cover a historic and remarkable event like Daytona. Especially as this will see the series make its first outing under new management, the DMG having taken over earlier last year. So stay tuned for fantastic photography, great writing and a little piece of history.

Good to hear that we will be getting more of Scott's pics. Even if the actual races at Daytona are a bit like watching oranges roll around a bowl, Scott always captures the very best of what there is to see.
