Scott Jones Takes Texas: Race Day, Part 1

Repsol Paso Doble

That the two riders on the race billboards at COTA should use the colors of the Spanish flag seemed fitting somehow

Up the hill and into the first corner. They all made it, in all three classes

Jorge Lorenzo had a much, much better race than expected, leaving him paradoxically disappointed

Dovizioso continues to exceed expectations on the Ducati. Admittedly, expectations were low

Joy in Qatar, frustration in Austin. Things will be better once Rossi gets back to Europe

Here comes the gruesome twosome!

Given the resources available, Michael Laverty has done an outstanding job on the PBM machine

Cal Crutchlow: fast, angry, determined. Watch out for him at Jerez

Nico Terol's win at Austin proved just how big the mental factor is. More confidence = much more competitive

The start of a Moto3 race: the sound a horde of furious lawnmowers out pillaging

Record breaker

Cal is angry do i blame him? Not sure? Yam has never been the fastest bike - but if he has last years frame, this years motor and brakes it seems like he'd be exactly where here is.. (the bike is better than cal would like us to belive?). Seems like Yamaha has given him a great bike.. I wouldn't be surprise with a win and several (3 or so) podium's .....

Falling on my sword again - I never imagined cal would be this good... Bradly is even exceeding my expectiations.... Herve has a great eye for talent to be sure.

Rossi also started his time at Ducati on a bike that won two of the last three races of the previous year.
