Scott Jones 2011 Retrospective: Round 7, Assen


Colin Edwards, owner of arguably the best looking helmet on the grid


Yamaha's red-and-white livery was a massive hit with the fans


Nobody could say Randy de Puniet wasn't trying in 2011


Holland is also big sky country


Honda engineering: a thing of beauty


Assen was where Ducati's GP11.1 made its first public appearance


Tale of the first part of 2011: Rain...


... and more rain ...


... and more rain ...


... and yet more rain.


The upside of all that rain is two pots of gold to go chase


Little was expected from Karel Abraham, but he surprised a lot of people


Photographers hunt in packs ...


... especially once the checkered flag has been waved...


The Office AUS


Just your average Moto2 race: a bundle of riders all fighting to occupy the same piece of real estate


MotoGP was sometimes a pale imitation


At Assen, Stefan Bradl's comfortable lead started to slip away from him


Preparation


Pol Espargaro, contemplating how he ended up in the gravel trap


What's on a man's mind?

I see batteries!!

So cool that Pramac have a Quantya Strada electric bike with them! David, is this becoming common place on the grid? I know some teams have placed PVs on the roofs of their transporters to push the green initiative within racing, but I have not seen an electric motorcycle in the paddock. Again SO cool.
