There was a lot of pressure on Jack Miller at home

It's that man again. Cal Crutchlow chalked up win number 2, this time in the dry


Things never worked out for Jorge Lorenzo all weekend


Rites and rituals


Pol Espargaro got the holeshot, but he couldn't hold on to his advantage

Nicky Hayden on a Repsol Honda. A wonderful trip down memory lane


Peekaboo

Andrea Migno, wondering if he would see the sky again

From darkness...


... into the light


Aleix Espargaro, ready to rumble


Pole #64 made #46 happy


A heady mix of tradition and modernity. That's Japan


Speed freak - Desmo Dovi


Nakasuga's splash of Japanese color


Kouichi Tsuji (right), pondering how to stop the Hondas


The wildest ride on the planet. Behind Mamola, wings and all


Suzuki speed


Pol Espargaro, showing what trying means


Magic cam. The 360 gyro cam. Truly a miracle of modern technology


For comparison: the standard fixed camera on the rear of Cal Crutchlow's Honda


"After you..."


Stepping in for Pedrosa is Hiroshi Aoyama

Motegi is all about braking. Valentino Rossi has been taking tips from Leon Haslam


Akropovic titanium beauty


Motegi has been cruel to Dani Pedrosa. Another year, another snapped collarbone


Man on a mission, with four races to go


Winglets may be banned from next year, but Ducati's winglet designs grow ever more sophisticated each race


The tunnel is one of Motegi's defining features, especially for photographers


It allows for a subtle interplay between light and dark


And creates stunning images such as this. Not so good for sponsors, though


A glimpse of the future


Freight train. Slipstreaming helps figure out fuel consumption


Kats Nakasuga, Yamaha's official test rider. One of the big reasons behind their success


Nakasuga puts in the hard miles to get the M1 ready, and is fast enough to find the limit


Hector Barbera gets to stand in for Andrea Iannone. So far, he's been impressive


Backing it in. One place Honda's improved mastery of the electronics have helped Marquez go faster


Big Japanese Sky


You could forget that this track is mostly inside an oval


Japanese fans are hardcore


Will you walk into my parlour?

This was Ducati's home race, and they tested here in preparation. That did not pay off


The eyes of a winner. Lorenzo Baldassarri went on to win the Moto2 race at Misano


Lean angle. Mean angle


When is a teammate a teammate?


Dani Pedrosa is not currently avaiable to answer that question


Cal Crutchlow is crashing less. But he's still crashing on occasion


Special home helmets. De rigeur


Number twos


That was a championship-winning ride from Brad Binder


Old friendships do not fade


Alex Lowes continues to impress as a replacement. He's pretty much up to speed after two weekends


Moto2 is getting closer again. Which is good, because it needed to


Gigi Dall'Igna, Ducati's big brain


September in Italy: bikes, beaches, sun, heat, a sea of yellow


Maria Herrera blows hot and cold. It's tough running in your own team


No stopping the Samurai

Home boy


Brembo - the aim is to emulate a brick wall, but with control


All hail the conquering hero. But that was last week...


Andrea Iannone's last home race for Ducati did not last long. A fractured vertebra in FP1 brought it to a premature end


Numbers don't lie. An accelerometer on the end of the Ducati's swingarm bears witness to their dedication to data


Home races mean special helmets. Andrea Dovizioso's was a gem


Xavi Fores found himself in at the deep end at Misano


Can't keep a racer away from a race track. Loris Baz came to see how his replacement would do


When Dani is on it, he's on it. He was on it at Misano


A peek under the hood. CNC machined rocker covers are a thing of beauty


Pol Espargaro started well at Misano. The finish, not so much


Aprilia found a little bit of magic around Misano. They need to find a little bit more to be competitive


How physical is riding a Honda RC213V? Crutchlow is out of the seat, pushing himself forward over the tank to keep the front down


Last one to the corner is a rotten egg


Ready to rumble

Definitely trying


Andrea Dovizioso practices his thousand yard stare


Red Bull & KTM - this is what they are doing in Moto3. Just wait till they get to MotoGP


Michelin have taken a lot of stick over recent races, but riders post race sang their praises


Lucio Cecchinello had something to celebrate again. And it wasn't the weather


Maverick Viñales. Something special about that young man


It's raining. Just taking the bike out for a spin...


What does confidence do for you? It gets you a pole and a podium


Home heartbreak. And real anger for Sam Lowes


Fans. They start young


Story of the MotoGP race, right there. Nobody is catching Maverick


If anyone thought Marquez and Rossi would be friends again, Silverstone disabused them of that illusion


All that hard work, just to waste some sparkling wine


Talent in WorldSBK is good. Alex Lowes proved that


Bagnaia, Bastianini, Antonelli. Only Pecco would remain from the all-Italian front row in Moto3


That reminds me, must get new T-shirts done ...

Silverstone. Suzuki territory?


Things didn't look so bad Friday. Saturday, however...


Pitching it in, GOAT style


Silverstone is tougher on the right side of the tire than on the left


Jack Miller rode, despite cracked vertebrae. Strong enough, was the diagnosis


First British winner since Barry Sheene. It shows, and it shines


Blue train


Another winner, and another rider brimming with confidence


Meticulous lockwiring


Losing Laverty will be a bad thing for MotoGP


Rain or shine, Marquez is there


Dani Pedrosa is adapting to the Michelins, but slowly


Alex Lowes has turned a lot of heads so far this weekend


Loris Baz, in his element


The Michelin fronts are working well so far at Silverstone. This time, it's the rear tire the riders don't like

Still hungry as ever


Michelin. Hot topic after Brno


Andrea Dovizioso, symphony in red and white


Faster than the bike


Brad Binder and John McPhee were in a class of their own at Brno. McPhee was the smarter racer, and won

Brothers


The eyes of a winner. Jonas Folger managed the Moto2 race to perfection


What's the first thing you do after winning your first MotoGP race? Phone your wife and new daughter


Key to the MotoGP race: it was wet early, and dried out slowly

First win was here, 20 years ago. Another one come Sunday?


Captain Scarlet? Or Captain Black?


Maverick is flying at Brno


#93. Left pinkie is bent like thta permanently. Perils of the job


Yes, Cal, we know the Honda likes to wheelie


A cheerful Bradley Smith. He's not always that cheerful


Honda bring a new air intake on the front of the RC213V. Different fairing shape too


For comparison, the standard factory fairing. Marquez is the test dummy, Pedrosa the benchmark


Back in the groove, and so smooth


Andrea Iannone's confidence has been visibly boosted since winning in Austria


Scott Redding looking at the future


Jorge Lorenzo often uses double thickness kneesliders, even in the dry


Situation normal, all crossed up


This is why photographers love Brno. Great images just waiting to be captured


Synchronized corner entry. A new Olympic sport?
