2009 MotoGP Rd2

This years MotoGP weekend was a little rough. We spent most of Saturday in the cold rain and didnt see any action at all as the Qualifying was cancelled due to water on the track. We arrived on Sunday morning with a forecast of no rain but were greeted by a heavy downpour as the morning warmups started. Fortunately it cleared off and the track dried up for the days racing. Lorenzo took the win in some exciting racing with Rossi and Pedrosa in tow. Our man Hayden was unfortunately torpedoed off the track in th first lap by the local hero Takahashi which was a complete bummer. Anyhow heres a few pics and a vid of the start. Added 4/28 some photos from our friend Yuji Ishihara, who was sitting in turn 5 and caught "Torpedo Takahashi" giving Nicky the "bump".
