Luis Salom's Pons Kalex, or what remained after it had been tossed at Turn 1


Dani Pedrosa, a fair way down the grid


Turn 1, lap 2, and the leaders are already set

He came, he saw, he conquered

It's been a tough year for Stefan Bradl on the Forward Yamaha

Maniac Joe? Mr Maturity, more like. Note the proximity of the winglets to the asphalt


Cold mornings? Duct tape the radiator and oil cooler. Problem solved


Different approaches to bike swaps for Pedrosa and Marquez. A skip and a jump for #26, a bunny hop for #93


Now that's what I call cutting the chicane at Assen


Yonny Hernandez feathers the clutch

What hides behind the carbon? Is it a torque sensor, perhaps?


Jacob's Ladder. Welcome to Assen


Crowd pleaser. Cal Crutchlow is always good value


Mr 100%. Because Aleix Espargaro never gives less
