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
