Dirt track, Marquez-style


This is what a former AMA champ does: helps prepare his own bike


Kenny Noyes grew up riding on the dirt. He was the only man to keep Mees and Marquez within sight


Two legends: Guy Martin and Troy Bayliss. This is what they do for fun


17-inch Supermoto wets. Not what AMA riders are used to


Sideways by Shayna Texter, before they fixed her number


Bradley Smith had come on in leaps and bounds since the first Superprestigio


Scott Redding had a rough night, tearing a chest muscle during qualifying


It was competitive in both Open and Superprestigio classes


Jared Mees listens to advice from his crew


Brad Baker shows how it's done


Lorenzo Baldassari was the revelation of the evening. Then again, he trains at Rossi's ranch every Sunday


The brother of the champ

Champions finish the season in the style they started it


The story of the Moto3 title race in a single frame: Jack Miller did all he could to win it, but he had only Isaac Viñales between himself and Alex Marquez


In the end, there were a lot of riders behind Valentino Rossi, and only one ahead


Remind me again, was this a job for duct tape, or WD40?


Nervous faces along pit lane as rain fell. In the end, only Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Iannone came in to swap bikes


One of the most exciting spots on the calendar: Turn 14 at Valencia


A tale of two riders


Better luck next year, Mr Lorenzo


Andrea Iannone led during the early part of the race. He needs to learn to lead in the final laps


Dani Pedrosa's worst season in a while wasn't for want of trying


With every passing race, Gigi Dall'Igna looks more and more like Ducati's savior


Brothers at war: the Espargaros may love each other, but they love beating each other just as much


Moto3 produced a finale worthy of the best season of racing we have seen for a while


Funny that the future of MotoGP should include a 35-year-old. But he proved it does


HRC boss Shuhei Nakamoto loves his riders. Above all, he loves his winners


#RufeaTeam


When the rain came, Jorge Lorenzo went backwards, and the Ducatis went forwards


2014 has been a great season for MotoGP, with close battles all through the field

Compare and contrast: Suzuki's chassis provides outstanding handling and turning


Honda's super stiff 2015 RC213V. Incredible braking and turning


Michele Pirro's Ducati GP14: Stiff, excellent stability in braking, but turning, not so much...


The NGM Forward team tested Kayaba suspension ...


... Stefan Bradl was not at all impressed, and told reporters he did not want to waste any more time testing it ...


... in the end, it will come down to money. Will Forward take money from Kayaba, or pay for Ohlins?


The Forward Yamaha top yoke and Magneti Marelli spec dashboard


A young Australian rider with Cristian Gabarrini? How do you think that will turn out?


More power for Nicky Hayden from the RC213V-RS, but he'd still take even more


The Aprilia is stunning. Slow, but stunning


Spot the exhaust. Yamaha tested a new slash-cut pipe at Valencia


Ah, there it is. It was straight through and LOUD. Meant to help with engine response


Every racing series should have a rider called Maverick


The biggest visible difference between the 2014 and 2015 RC213V is in the air intake


The 2014 bike is an oval basking shark-style opening


The 2015 bike has a pinch in the middle, making it more of a lip formation


Put lipstick on that and I would definitely kiss it


For comparison, meet the Suzuki's unkissable mouth


Best thing about testing? Getting up close and personal with the most amazing motorcycles in the world


The 2015 RC213V


Dashboard, complete with blinkenlights. The analog rev counter means this is Pedrosa's bike


Attention to detail: Movistar TV Carles Perez pointed out to me that even the TV camera is beautifully integrated on the bike


Two Honda Open bikes: Laverty's RCV1000R...


... and Nicky Hayden's RC213V-RS


Scott Redding's main focus was finding his position on the bike. That meant playing with lots of foam and tank pads

He gets stronger as he gets older


Last time on slow bikes for both Hayden and Redding


Bradley Smith's luck has been miserable in 2014. Do not ask him to buy you a lottery ticket


Hiroshi Aoyama was surprised at just how different the Honda RC213V-RS is to the RCV1000R


Last time out on the Desmosedici for Cal Crutchlow. He was fast enough, but happy to see the back of it


93 vs 68 style check


Andrea Iannone was fast in qualifying. The prospect of being a factory rider gave him a boost


Spanish skies


Valencia was a time for goodbyes. Stefan Bradl bid an emotional farewell to the LCR Honda team


Aleix Espargaro's sadness was tempered by his eagerness to ride the Suzuki

Big day on Sunday. Jack Miller's ready


The new king of Spain. Arguably more popular than the current one


Randy's back. Been a tough, but interesting return for Suzuki


The other newcomer is the Honda RC213V-RS, getting its shakedown in the hands of Hiroshi Aoyama. It wheelies just fine


Information overload: everything you need to know about the state of a Yamaha M1 MotoGP motorcycle


Last time out for Stefan Bradl on the LCR Honda


Last time out for Cal Crutchlow on the Ducati, too. Crutchlow will be happier than Bradl


Different bike means completely different settings. The RC213V-RS really is very different to the RCV1000R


This man wants second in the championship back


Next year's bike will be much faster, Scott Redding


Aleix Espargaro demonstrated the value of the Open class in 2014. He impressed enough people on the Forward Yamaha to get a Suzuki factory contract


The second half of 2014 has been tough on Dani Pedrosa


If it were any other circuit, Valentino Rossi would have second place in the championship in the bag


The underside of #38


Alex Marquez will face a stadium full of fans expecting him to be champion. There's a lot of pressure on young shoulders

The old Valentino was back at Phillip Island


Stefan Bradl was so desparate for a good result at Phillip Island that he overcooked a corner and crashed out


Peek-a-boo


Everyone wants a tow from Jack Miller. Jack Miller is not amused


Gardner Jr: Wayne's son Remy had a solid race in Australia


Go Skippy!


The most commonly seen view of Marquez' RC213V


Two Australian MotoGP Legends


A double-barreled Honda


More and more often, riders are wearing helmets on their track inspection laps

PI was a lot easier on Nicky Hayden's surgically rebuilt wrist than Motegi was

Attack vector: Rossi about to try to pass Lorenzo at MG


The new Cal Crutchlow is a completely different kettle of fish to the old one


After faltering in the last few races, Jack Miller got it perfectly right at home


The tale of the race? Marc Marquez dived into the lead from the start...


... built a massive lead ...


... but it ended in tears when temperatures dropped and grip disappeared


Maniac Joe lived up to his name in Australia. Two dodgy moves, the last ending with him in the gravel


It also ended Dani Pedrosa's race, Iannone having damaged the rim of Pedrosa's rear wheel


Phillip Island produces great racing. Fantastic battles up and down the grid...


... an insanely intense Moto3 race ...


Even Moto2 was worth watching


Maverick, Master of Moto2


Pick a winner. Moto3 was a free-for-all


Rossi's win was almost as popular with the crowd as Miller's in Moto3


Some spectators were just happy to have survived the weekend without incident


A forest of photographers


The runaway train went over the hill...

Free of pressure, and fast as ever


There's nothing quite like a 99 by the seaside


Cal Crutchlow has finally figured the Ducati out: ride it like you stole it


Stefan Bradl, up and over Lukey Heights


Unlike Motegi, Valentino Rossi didn't get qualifying right at the Island. He's still fast though


It's Andrea Dovizioso's turn to struggle on the Ducati this weekend


Phillip Island. Hard work.


My kind of energy drink. In the background, not the foreground


The Maniac


Dani Pedrosa looked lost all weekend, but things came together during qualifying


Aleix Espargaro was fast during qualifying, but can he make his tires last in the race?


The quick Brit: Bradley Smith is looking much more capable in Australia


His teammate is having a little less joy


In a blur


Fastest open Honda: Hiroshi Aoyama surprised a fair few in Q1

The circuit in the middle of nowhere. And all the more beautiful for it


Surplus to requirements at Phillip Island. Not enough hard braking to get the high mass disks up to temperature


Could this be the new King of the Island? Jorge Lorenzo is off to a good start so far


But if Lorenzo has any illusions of victory, he'll have to get past this man first


Parting of the ways: Mike Leitner informed Dani Pedrosa that he wouldn't continue as his crew chief in 2016


Could it work out? It did when Silvano Galbusera came in to work with Valentino Rossi


Nicky Hayden held the lap record for Phillip Island until last year. Fastest of the production Hondas on Friday


Moto2 flashback


Founding of a new dynasty? 1987 500cc champ Wayne Gardner's son Remy has a wildcard at Phillip Island


Apparently, Tech 3 Moto2 rider Marcel Schrotter is from Germany


The Repsol Hondas, using the least brake to get the most deceleration


When the weather cooperates, PI is the best place on earth


Alex Marquez, the 2014 Moto3 world champion? He's getting close


Because Ohlins


Cal Crutchlow gets faster as the season end draws near.

#11 for #93


Moto2 finally produced some of the drama of old. A great race


Pedrosa, Rossi and Dovizioso put on a real show in MotoGP, but they could only battle for 3rd


Tobacco advertising may be banned, but they can't stop smoking in the paddock


Moto3. Axe murderers only need apply


Pressure. Johann Zarco couldn't convert pole into a podium


Black and white, and read all over


Tito Rabat described his win at Silverstone as one of the best races of his career. This could be the key race of the year


#33, Enea Bastianini, has been the revelation of the Moto3 class in 2014. Hope swells in the chest of all Italy


Technically, this is referred to as a "gubbins".


A hard furrow to plough for Bautista


2014 has been a tough year for British riders. 2015 will see both Crutchlow and Redding on better bikes


That's official HRC sticky tape. Full factory.


Turning a Grand Prix bike is done using the rear brake


Follow the leader
