Great Photo from the San Marino GP
« on: September 14, 2015, 01:43:16 pm »
No special commentary on this Sunday's race at Misano.  The race was run under very changeable conditions starting in the dry and then being caught out by rain and then the track drying quickly when the rains stopped suddenly.  Marquez and the Honda team managed best and pulled off the win in difficult conditions.  The championship leader, Rossi, finished 5th but actually gained as his closest rival in Championship points DNFed.

But, the MotoGP site had this really great photo from the GP that I wanted to share.  It's the Brit, Cal Crutchlow on the #35 LCR Honda leading a short freight train of race bikes.  Right behind him are the two Ducatis and bringing up the rear is Espargo on the #41 Suzuki.

None of them are challenging for the championship but what a great photo.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
