Scott Jones 2011 Retrospective: Round 8, Mugello

A Ducati in the hills of Tuscany. It doesn't get much better than this.

But a Rossi podium was not going to happen at Mugello, despite the GP11.1

Ant West had a tough 2011, but it got better once Warren Willing joined him in the MZ garage

Lazy sunny afternoon

Dani Pedrosa was back from injury at Mugello

Pedrosa's clash with Marco Simoncelli at the press conference spiced the weekend up significantly

Mugello is set in the middle of the countryside, and sometimes the countryside pays a visit

Probably the most beautiful race track on the planet

Not for want of trying

The Eye of Sauron is upon you

Mugello was Andrea Dovizioso's third podium in a row

Looking at these pictures :

- how much I miss racing
- how bad I want to ride through these mountains in the backgrounds and pay a visit to Mugello myself
- how beautiful it is to see a lone rider fighting against the clock
- how crazy these guys are, coming so hard into the first corner
- how brilliant a photographer Scott Jones is

Thanks a lot ;-)
