Scott Jones' Indianapolis Photos - Part 1

Being a Texan, Ben Spies is naturally unfazed at being thrown out of the saddle

Nico Terol shows that blue can be the fastest color

Seeing eye-to-eye: Colin Edwards ...

... and Jorge Lorenzo

MotoGP bikes are fitted to the gills with electronics. But that doesn't mean you can't override them

Alvaro Bautista is starting to find his feet on the Rizla Suzuki

A sight we will probably have to get used to: Ben Spies in the winners' circle

Return the favor. Visit Spain.

Marco Simoncelli may lose his position as HRC's favorite son at Gresini if the Dovizioso issue isn't solved soon


This happened three times over the course of the weekend, the most that Valentino Rossi has ever crashed at a single event

If Toni Elias had stayed in MotoGP, Speed Up's Andrea Iannone would be Moto2 champion

Iron Man

Things just don't get any easier for Casey Stoner

No, he's not tired. Hiroshi Aoyama works on improving the strength in his back


One of the reasons that Rossi is leaving: Masao Furusawa, the driving force behind Yamaha's M1 MotoGP bike, is retiring at the end of the year.

Fantastic shot of Casey! The Eyes show it all : (

He is not a happy camper these days. I hope he gets his mojo back, and that he can rekindle that spark on the Honda next year.

Good shot of Lorenzo in his Iron Man lid. He and the bike look so solid in that corner!

So calling this group of photos 'Part 1" implies there will be a part 2...come on Scott, you know we are anxious to see what else you caught on 'film' there at Indy.
Besides as much as I am glad to see a Rossi shot in your batch above, I am hoping to see one where he is still on the bike as well. ;-)

With that said - the shots are GREAT - thanks!! I especially like CEII looking ready to go and Ben in the winner's circle.

I got caught up in other things. Part 2 is coming, but I don't want them to get lost in the deluge of news that will come out of a MotoGP and WSBK double-header weekend, so Part 2 will come on Monday or Tuesday. It will be worth the wait, I promise! 

That makes total sense.

To be honest, I have known Scott for quite a few years and this seemed like an opportunity to rib him a little (because I was under the impression he was doing the pic posting...).

With that said, I am sure they will be worth the wait!
