Indy MotoGP Photos (Spoilers!)

I have roughly 1100 photos to rifle through over the next week or so, but here are a few of the better ones from first glance. I have shots from all qualfying sessions yesterday, and all 3 (125,250,GP) warmups and races today.

Spoiler Alert! I don't recommened viewing these until you've seen the race, some are pretty telling.

Very nice photos. I was sitting before the front straight where you can see 40 sec. of the lap. Pedrosa low sided just in front of us and there was a spectacular 125 high side earlier on.

Some more from Sunday...

One of my better slow-shutter-speed, panning shots:


The only photo of Edwards taken all weekend without his middle-finger extended:


Some generic Dorna big-wig crapping himself on the 2-up Ducati:


Opening lap of the 125cc race:


Bautista on the parade-lap, NOT doing a wheelie:

Really nice shots. I took like 800 pictures, but I was sitting behind a fence right by the starting grid so most of my pics have the riders looking like they are in a cheap prison, not cool
