Native Shooter: Andrew Gosling Shoots Phillip Island

King of the Island

His predecessor: Mick Doohan took the RC213V out for a spin at the Island

It's been two very, very long years at Ducati for Valentino Rossi

Stefan Bradl has had a good rookie year in MotoGP


Ben Spies missed Phillip Island. At least that meant he couldn't suffer any more bad luck there

Guy Coulon - One reason Andrea Dovizioso is so fast

There is plenty of non-Spanish talent coming up through the ranks: Danny Kent is another fast young Briton

Cal Crutchlow, now with added beard

Leading CRT - Aleix Espargaro has fought all season long with his teammate Randy De Puniet, and so far come out on top

Hitting the big time

Australian Moto3 champion Linc Gilding acquitted himself admirably on his introduction to the world stage

Another fast Aussie: Arthur Sissis hit the podium at his home race

Appeasing the gods of motorcycling

With no testing and little support, James Ellison has done surprisingly well

It's good to be the champ, part I

It's good to be the champ, part II

It takes concentration ....

... to earn a celebration

Fantastic photography, Andrew.

The Rossi crash photo is tragic in its own way, but all I see when I look at it is that old Hanna Barberra cartoon lion who's catch-cry was "Exit - stage right!"...

Looks like they fitted the thumb operated rear brake lever for Doohan?

Absolutely correct... clearly visible in the subscriber desktop resolution shot. Can even see the top of the master cylinder reservoir.

It's hard to be impressed by sport photography nowadays; the equipment is so good and anyone with money can have a go.

But it takes special talent to produce work this good; the Rossi crash is priceless, it would make a nice pairing with the one of him overtaking Stoner on the corkscrew at Laguna Seca (what a difference a bike makes).

Well done Andrew and thanks for posting them David.

The pic of the Ducati trashed is a perfect summary of the Rossi/Ducati experience. Coexistence is not even attainable.

Agreed - the nosecone with it's '46' seems to be saying "I'm out of here, see ya"... amazing photo.

Looks like he also has his own GoPro attached to the rear tail section for his own home video onboard shot. Keep the memories going!

I love the wide angle of Stoner up top. It's a shame he won't be around to show us how to slide the rear tire round those fast corners. Although I did notice that Pedrosa was doing it a few rounds ago, definitely showing he's confident on the bike as well.

Bring on Valencia! and next day official winter tests...

Love that photo & its caption. It's been long two years for the fans as well.
