WORDS & PHOTOS: NICK EDARDS,
You know the race results, but
we thought you might want
a little more info behind this
year’s racers and how they
did at Pl. Photographer Nick
Edards takes you through
things as he saw them.
Bautista isn’t just bloody fast, he’s an engaging guy as well. He kisses his
old knee sliders as he rips them off and replaces them with new ones; he has
a stretching routine before he gets on the bike which is a little reminiscent
of Rossi’s pre-race callisthenics and he always seemed genuinely happy to
shake a hand, have his photo taken or exchange a word. It’s easy to like him.
