Looking Back At 2013 With Scott Jones, Part 3: Italian Passion

This was visit number 18 to Mugello for Valentino Rossi. Mugello is where his heart lies

Unfortunately, he would not get much further than this. Rossi and Alvaro Bautista took intersecting lines on the first lap, and both crashed out

Marc Marquez broke many records in his first year, including fastest crash, bailing at the end of Mugello's straight. He escaped relatively unhurt

The race in Italy would be a three-man affair, until Marquez crashed out, leaving Lorenzo and Pedrosa to slug it out

Scott Redding looked like a champion at Mugello. Tragically for the young British rider, his luck ran out at the end of the season

Joy for Ducati - Andrea Dovizioso bagged a front-row start at Mugello. Overall, they didn't do too badly at home

After a strong 2012, 2013 would turn out to be a very tough year for Randy de Puniet

Red lights in the morning, mechanics' warning

Ben Spies made an early return at Mugello, but quickly realized it was too early. He would not race

The hills mourn his passing
