Scott Jones Shoots Laguna: Saturday And Sunday At The Dry Lake

Broken leg and duff shoulder or not, Rossi was on it in the US

Andrea Dovizioso could not translate his front-row start into a top-three finish

Dreaming of a three-peat one day

For a rookie, Alvaro Bautista handled his first visit to Laguna Seca extremely well

Wearing bright colors is essential if you are to be seen on cold and misty mornings

Dani Pedrosa pushed hard in the early laps, but paid the ultimate penalty

Texas comes to California

There really is nothing stopping this man

Especially not since this man saw fit to break his leg

For those who had problems locating his home state, Ben Spies had a handy map printed on his helmet

My worry is that a injured guy gets on the podium what does it say to all the others he beat on the day.Id agree Rossi seems to put 110% effort into his racing yet others just poodle around and draw their pay. Maybe if they to raced with their heart they too could achieve better results
Most of the top riders have upped their game this year while others seem happy to get lower results than the rider and bike deserve,

Oh I dunno ithink. I watched post-race interviews with Colin Edwards and Loris capirossi on and they both seemed completely fed up!

Whilst I think both riders are well past their best, they both reckoned they gave it their all. Obviously they have to have belief in their own talents. As Edwards said after being asked if he was happy with 7th, his typically Edwards-like response of "When you're happy with 7th it's time to go home!", they have to believe that they can do it and the bike is holding them back. We all know the Suzuki is a duff, but for Edwards to see Spies in his rookie year plaster him week after week, it must dent the ego heavily... Hence the 3 year Factory Ducati offer in WSB, must be very tempting... swallow your pride and enjoy being at the sharp end again. Worked for Biaggi!

Fantastic pics by the way, great work!
