A Photog's French Adventure: Scott Jones At Le Mans, Race Day

Through a glass, darkly

#69, ready. Hayden would only last four corners, getting bumped off the track by Andrea Iannone on the first lap

The first laps of the MotoGP race were a real barn burner

Plate spinning

The Hondas were back in Moto3, but they had Jack Miller to deal with

Two in a row for Mika Kallio. We think this expression might be 'elated'.

The Le Mans ferris wheel, one of the better vantage points for watching MotoGP

Cal Crutchlow's head and hands go here

What better way to disguise a bridge?

Corsi, Kallio, Salom. It would not end in that order.

Home Grand Prix can be tough, as Mike Di Meglio will tell you

"... until Marquez recovered. At that point, Operation Clean Sweep resumed"

Nice to see an Avintia pic- missing from much coverage everywhere this season it seems. Pity it covers only this crash. Hey ho!

It was Aleix waving. He had run off at the start, and was holding his hand up to let everyone know he would be rejoining.

Ok so I had to read Wikipedia in Spanish, the Doce Mas Uno refers to how Angel Nieto is superstitious and refuses to acknowledge having *13* (unlucky number) titles, so it's Doce mas uno? (twelve and/+ one)?

Not on topic, but just have to say the bike racing world has lost one of it's bravest sons. R.I.P Simon Andrews
