Lap 23, Turn 15, the moment the dream died. Pecco Bagnaia knew he had to win, chose the hard front, crashed out
Bagnaia's crash turned a double Repsol Honda podium into their first 1-2 since Aragon 2017. The cool weather and high grip suits the Honda
Ducs in a row - Luca Marini's bright yellow VR46 bike captured the attention
Takaaki Nakagami was fastest on Sunday morning, but there's no points on offer in warm up. In the race, he crashed, rejoined, finished last.
Speaking of crashes, Marc Marquez had a rough Saturday, before going on to win on Sunday
Farewell tour. Valentino Rossi threw his helmet into the crowd on Sunday. He never does that. A special moment
Decidedly second hand. Joan Mir destroyed his bike on Saturday afternoon by flinging it into the catchfence, hitting a camera operator
Marshals can be helpful in more ways than one. That includes preventing photographers from getting close up photos of crashed bikes. Here, Pecco Bagnaia's Ducati GP21
Marc Marquez chased Pecco Bagnaia, then gave up, then went on to win after Bagnaia's mistake
It was a rough weekend for Joan Mir. He and Danilo Petrucci hugged it out after Mir crashed in the race and wiped Petrucci out in his final MotoGP race on Italian soil
Not quite ideal conditions.
Yellow was the color of the weekend
Massive thumb brake on Enea Bastianini's bike, and a lockout switch stolen from an MTB to operate the rear ride height device. Butterfly switch on the triple clamp for the holeshot setting at the start
Ducati is the OG of holeshot devices. Check how low the rear of the bike is, how compressed the front forks
The Yamaha of Franco Morbidelli is not far off
Same with Valentino Rossi, though you wonder if the rear could go lower
Alex Marquez uses his lanky frame to get over the front. The Honda is low. The 2022 bike should be even lower, given its revised exhaust layout
Marc Marquez is a public critic of the ride-height devices. But just because he doesn't like them doesn't mean he won't use them
The front of the Suzuki GSX-RR is low, but the rear is still higher than the rest
