Better luck in Jerez? Jorge Lorenzo couldn't stop the Repsols in Texas


You could have become very rich betting that the entire Moto2 grid would make it through turn 1 in one piece


Stefan Bradl sparks it up with his elbow


Marc Marquez demonstrates his secret technique for going really, really fast on a motorcycle


Black and white and red all over


Austin's complex layout turned out to be highly photogenic


Knee down, elbow down. What's next?


The next step awaits for Stefan Bradl. It didn't quite come in Texas


Austin didn't run to plan for Nicky Hayden. He's hoping for progress soon.


Marc Marquez, possessor of a winning smile

Repsol Paso Doble


That the two riders on the race billboards at COTA should use the colors of the Spanish flag seemed fitting somehow


Up the hill and into the first corner. They all made it, in all three classes


Jorge Lorenzo had a much, much better race than expected, leaving him paradoxically disappointed


Dovizioso continues to exceed expectations on the Ducati. Admittedly, expectations were low


Joy in Qatar, frustration in Austin. Things will be better once Rossi gets back to Europe


Here comes the gruesome twosome!


Given the resources available, Michael Laverty has done an outstanding job on the PBM machine


Cal Crutchlow: fast, angry, determined. Watch out for him at Jerez


Nico Terol's win at Austin proved just how big the mental factor is. More confidence = much more competitive


The start of a Moto3 race: the sound a horde of furious lawnmowers out pillaging


Record breaker

Marc Marquez, speedway style


Yellow & Chrome


It was ten years on Saturday since Daijiro Kato died. The paddock remembered


There are never any easy weekends, but this one was really tough for Jorge Lorenzo


If ever a man deserved a factory ride...


Andrea Dovizioso keeps plugging away on the Ducati


Falls off, breaks collarbone, gets right back on. But Karel Abraham would not race in Texas


Shoulder surgery, chest pains, it's not been easy for Ben Spies this year


Can Dani see the future?


Heeeeeeere's Nicky!


Bradley Smith, making excellent progress for a "normal" rookie. Shame he is being compared to Marquez


Stefan Bradl is this far away from threatening at the front

Psychedelic. The town, the track, the rider


Twist and go. And when Rossi twists, he really goes now


The indefatigible Mr Crutchlow


9:55. The Texan adventure begins for MotoGP


Could it be podium time for Stefan Bradl? He's top 3 on day 1


COTA: built for spectacle


Ben Spies gets to race at home this weekend


Life saver: the compulsory brake lever protector saved Rossi at Qatar


Bradley Smith: overshadowed by Marquez, but right on target to match Bradl's progression. The boy's doing great


Ducati Island. Hayden and Dovizioso doing OK in Texas


The life of a Moto2 mechanic: strip, clean, rebuild. Do it all again tomorrow.


Hammer time. And butter time.


Alvaro Bautista, fresh from signing a deal through 2014

Race face. Marc Marquez' is one of the best


Hey! I think I see Tony up there! Hi Tony!


Ducati owners will tell you it's called "character"


Many feared an Espargaro runaway, but Scott Redding kept him honest almost to the line


At my signal, unleash hell


Lord and master. There was no stopping Jorge Lorenzo


Marc Marquez' riding style. Spectacular doesn't even begin to cover it


Cal Crutchlow knows what he's got to do to get past the Hondas: "Take a leaf out of Valentino's book, and start charging them"


Yup, he's definitely back


Lonely in red


/race


It was hard, but Pol Espargaro enjoyed that

Push to pass? Rocket power sees Crutchlow get past Pedrosa


No holding back


Scott Redding is ready, more ready than ever


Young pretender? That was not pretending...


A number you will need to remember. Alex Rins will be at the front a lot in Moto3 this year


Andrea Dovizioso is giving Ducati fresh hope. But it's still a long slog


Team Texas will be toughing it out this year


We have a winner in the wheelie competition... Stefan Bradl


Marc Marquez and crew chief Santi Hernandez settle on a strategy: ride really, really fast


The man in the walrus mustache? Derek Crutchlow, father of Cal


Polyccio. He's going to be a hard man to beat this year. But not impossible to beat


Luis Salom: a Spanish rider in a Finnish team makes for an excellent combination

Happiness: entering a corner knowing the bike will exit where you plan to


The Terminator. Lorenzo's lap times are as machine-like as ever


So far, the 04 is doing better than the 46. Dovizioso is surprising a few people


Stefan Bradl - only 10th fastest, but not for a lack of trying


The Acrobat. Marc Marquez' riding style looks like an accident waiting to happen. But it never happens.


Bradley Smith may be "the other rookie", but he's been impressive at Qatar nonetheless


Turn, baby, turn


Dani Pedrosa can't get his Honda to turn either. Sandy circuits steal drive


Another GP rookie: Australian Bryan Staring has been drafted in to ride the Gresini CRT machine


Surprise package? Not really, we knew Crutchlow was fast


Burning rubber? No, just the dust that gets kicked up once you go off line. Looks worse than it feels, say the riders


All aboard the Porfuera Train, destination QP2


How'd Nicky do? "Not too bad," as the man himself said


Crazy Joe. Crazy, Crazy Joe

Porfuera turns Tron: Jorge Lorenzo has glowing blue rings around his helmet


Marc Marquez' first day of school could be considered a success. Fourth, and fastest Honda


Happy, and it shows


Relaxen und watschen die blinkenlights


Aleix Espargaro was the fastest of the CRT men on Thursday, getting within 1.2 of the fastest man. Few would have thought that possible at Qatar


The track was dusty, and the lack of grip meant a lot of riders took unplanned excursions through the gravel


One of the more eye-catching bikes at Qatar. And there are plenty of eye-catching bikes on display


The NGM Forward team have their toes on the fine line between eye-catching and eye-watering


Night races = clear visors


Not too shabby, General Robert E. Dovizioso


The thousand yard stare


The very pinnacle in motorcycle engineering

Welcome to Spain!


Dani Pedrosa, working the Repsol Honda


The man who would later join Pedrosa at Repsol


Mr Mantequilla, melting butter


Tough year, Nicky


A year later, he'd be much faster


Two of the best in the business, Gabarrini and Forcada


Something we'd see a lot of in 2012: Pol Espargaro celebrating a win


Pol's brother, Aleix, did pretty well too, considering


A star is born: Romano Fenati got his first win in the wet at Jerez


A superstar left. The first rumors of Stoner's retirement emerged in Spain


By your command


Art


A tough year for Big Ben


Spanish Skies


Replacing the two-stroke 125s did not end the highsides


Louis Rossi never made the Moto3 checkered flag


Scott Redding. Good in 2012, better in 2013?
