The Rossi Interview

Incredible action shots
Like this one - It's the first Irish National event of the season and Michael Dunlop's first 600 road race of the year, so you'll forgive him for taking things a bit easy...

Schwantz on Spies

The making of Lorenzo
No girlfriend, no mobile, no email, no father: it took a kill-or-cure regime of isolation to turn Jorge Lorenzo into the only rider to challenge Valentino Rossi for the 2009 MotoGP title.

 

 

MotoGP tech highlights
