The Racing Wall

I understand rubbing elbows, but this is too much. I know the first two pics were taken in Mallory Park, UK. Don't know the which track was for the other two. Still

Is it just me or does it seem like Crutchlow has got the front end sliding while dragging shoulder on the wall? It looks like the front is somewhat tucking.

Never managed to finish, but was always one of the fastest in practice. Last time out, had a real shot at a podium before the bike dropped a valve on the first or second lap I think..........

at any other track that must be heartbreaking but at Macau I'd just be pleased to come away in one piece

maybe 2009 will be kinder

Thats what it looks like, just a small slide though.

I guess I should call and be friendly, but I'm a slacker like that.

But speaking of Haner, here's some lame- footage I shot at TWS (Texas World Speedway) in October of 2006. Good times, good times. It all degraded into some level of debauchery soon after this, but I deleted those. Blame it on John 'cause he's always been insane, and Kevin threw fuel on the fire, as usual.

He was at a few last year, one at MSRH on a new prilla and blew up the tranny.
