This past week, I took a work holiday and traveled once again to Indianapolis to cover my second Red Bull Indy Moto Grand Prix.
Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa ran a near-perfect race and it was a bad weekend for American riders with Nicky Hayden not starting after a crash on Saturday and Ben Spies' engine blowing up while he was in the lead on Sunday.
It was fun and I made some images, my favorites which are below.
In a funny and awesome moment, I found a b-roll shot of me shooting a press conference on the MotoGP.com website. I had seen the camera guy shooting and I thought I walked in front of his shot, but turns out he wanted me in it...
I also got a chance to meet Jorge Lorenzo and I showed him my photo of his crash at Laguna Seca in 2011 (which he had already seen many times I imagine). He told me it was good, smiled and patted me on the shoulder. He's a nice guy and should regain the world title this season.

I love how far over Casey Stoner is leaned over in turn 7 here.
