There is no part of a Honda racing motorcycle that is not beautifully made


A study in yellow, white and blue


Scott Redding takes racing in front of his home crowd very seriously


Stefan Bradl, knee down...

... and sometimes, everything down.


Marc Marquez, looking in the direction his competitors are usually to be found.

Pro tip: how to keep your clutch plates in order


Le Mans turned out some good battles. Dovizioso led a close group early on ...


... while Rossi took over at the front a few laps later


The official Moto2 and Moto3 tire supplier even has a bridge and corner named after them...


Mika Kallio shows emotion. A rare sight from the cool Finn


Comfort is everything, next to protection


One of the most famous sights in all of motor sports


Every race track should have a big wheel


The Hayden Hustle


A glimpse of the future: Le Mans was one place where Pol Espargaro could play with a Moto2 style on the Yamaha


Marc Mirage


His second podium of the season, Le Mans was the point at which we knew Valentino Rossi was back

Job done


Miller vs Rins was as tough as Miller vs Marquez


Mechanics always manage to retain a remarkable sense of calm when riders bring their bikes back like this

Jorge Lorenzo's season went from bad to worse at Austin, with a jump start of almost comical proportions


By the end of 2014, two of the three Americans in this picture wouldn't be racing. It was a tough year for Americans in GP


Austin was still not a Yamaha track in 2014


Welcome to Texas, Mr Pasini


Up close and personal with a Yamaha YZR-M1 clutch


This would be Colin Edwards' last race in the USA


And that, my friends, is why riders do dirt track


Once upon time, American racers ruled the world


This was one of them. Settled law suits meant that Kevin Schwantz was allowed back into CotA


Ready?


Turn One was the scene of much carnage in Moto2


Boxing? No, taping up palms to prevent blisters


Colorful Fenati


Andrea Dovizioso scored Ducati's first dry-weather podium since 2010 at Austin. Signs of real progress

Class of '14


Old man? Maybe, but he keeps getting faster


Just a few weeks after breaking his leg, Marc Marquez made his intentions all too clear at Qatar


Herding cats takes a very particular skill


Few had Tito Rabat as their favorite for the 2014 Moto2 title at Qatar. That would change


Gigi Dall'Igna would bring real change at Ducati


While Silvano Galbusera made a big difference to Valentino Rossi


It would be a long year at Ducati for Cal Crutchlow


24 liters of fuel for the Open bikes livened things up a bit


Qatar: as the sun sets, a roar fills the night sky


A taste of things to come. Jack Miller and Alex Marquez would scrap for the Moto3 title all the way to Valencia


The MotoGP race at Qatar turned into a war of attrition. Stefan Bradl crashed out of the lead, just as Jorge Lorenzo had.


A time for regrets


Jorge Lorenzo simmered with rage at Qatar, unable to get to grips with the new Bridgestone rear


After a season of disgruntled comments about bike set up, Mike Leitner would leave Dani Pedrosa's side


Change came often to the Ducati GP14, though the revolution was forced to wait


Intensity: Alex Marquez has it


2014 would not be the year Nicky Hayden had intended


The calm before the storm


We knew Maverick Viñales was good, but just missing out on a podium at the first attempt was a sign of something more than good

Jared Mees told Kenny Noyes to line up inside him at the start of the Superfinal. "I was thinking, 'You're either tricking me or you're going to open up a hole.'" Noyes said.


Marquez and Mees got away from the line better, but found Thomas Chareyre in their way


Chareyre went down, blocking Marquez, Mees and Smith


Noyes and Bailo were the beneficiaries


Marquez, Mees and Ribalta were left with ground to make up


The two champions soon forced their way forward...


... And started closing on the leaders


They disposed of Ribalta, and a very impressive Oliver Brindley


Then they started closing on Kenny Noyes


It took them a few laps ...


But they got past in the end


Two champions


Turn 1. Tricky spot.


Marcel Schrotter put up a very respectable performance


Spanish champ. And nearly Superprestigio champ


The Palau Sant Jordi: Once home to Michael Jordan, now home to Marc Marquez

Jared Mees shows how you get through the fluffy end


Oliver Brindley: remember the name. He's one fast 16-year-old


The moment it all went wrong: Thomas Chareyre slides out, blocking Marc Marquez and Jared Mees


Kenny Noyes does the thousand yard stare. No need, first corner is only 100 yards away


The star of the show. No, not him, Kevin Clark, the man with the flags


Passing ships - Ribalta and Simon


Storm Stacey: With a name like that, he'll be a fearsome racer once he's older

Remy Gardner. Will he match Wayne?


Full marks for style, Johann Zarco

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

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
