Le Mans MotoGP photos


I’ve not had time of late to post anything to this site so with thought it was high time that I put up some pics from the last couple of weeks. With the French and Italian MotoGP rounds, the Monaco Grand Prix and now the Isle of Man TT I’ve been run off my feet but there’s certainly been plenty of opportunities for some photos!

Here’s a selection of what I shot at Le Mans for the French Grand Prix:

D34A4428Cal Crutchlow was quick all weekend in France as he continues to adapt to riding the RC213vD34A4439Back on the Repsol Honda after his arm pump surgery was Dani Pedrosa. The Spaniard had been missed from the paddock and when he came back he was fast and able to finish the race but a crash in the race left him down the orderD34A4474Chatted to Marc Marquez briefly about the TT on the Thursday of the French GP, it’s something that he’s always enjoyed watching on TV but that he wouldn’t like to do. Marquez said that it’s amazing when you watch the TT to see riders so committed to racing that with any crash they might not come back alive…given his all or nothing riding style it’s safe to assume his style may not be the best match for the Mountain Course!


D34A4791Aleix Espargaro had a huge crash exiting the Dunlop bridge on Saturday. It was the biggest crash of his career and would result in him needing surgery on his right thumb.

D34A5174Andrea Iannone had another strong race with the Italian fighting through the pain of a recently dislocated shoulder and a loss of feeling in his arm to have the race defining battle with Marc Marquez

D34A5311On the other Ducati Andrea Dovizioso would stand on the rostrum once again with the Italian finishing third in what was a lonely race for him. But you’d imagine that more often than not he’d rather have a safe and steady 16 points that the battles he had over the last few years for minor points!

D34A5508As ever is there a better to shoot in pitlane than Cal Crutchlow? His eyes are his defining characteristic and this is one of my favourite shots of the weekend as it shows the intensity that a rider needs to get ready for a fast lap in qualifying

D34A5576On his way back into his garage in FP3 here is Valentino Rossi. He’s back on form in 2015 and the rider that he was during his pomp. When on full song there’s still noone more compelling than Rossi in sports

D34A5754Sam Lowes was left to rue a bad tyre choice and a lack of grip at the start of the Moto2 race that left him losing time to the podium men that he couldn’t regain. It was however another strong race for him as he continues to show his maturation and speed

D34A5823There was one man out front and on his own all weekend and that was Jorge Lorenzo. The double champion claimed his second win in a row and waltzed off into the distance at Le Mans to take a dominant win
