So I’ll confess that I haven’t been able to ‘Poond out the feature story I’d planned on to celebrate this weekend’s Moto GP event at the
... As can it already be One-year since I attended my inaugural Moto GP event at Speedway ... Not to mention having squirreled away my story about my favourite Hall of Fame Museum; SHEISA! But I digress... Indianapolis
Once again the ‘BigBoyz ranks features three ‘Yanks with the monikers of the Texas Tornado, The Kentucky Kid and ELBOWZ; Colin Edwards, Nicky Hayden and Ben Spies respectively. (Hey, age before beauty, eh?) Although I’ve personally nicknamed Speis Captain kOOL! Who came Oh So close to capturing his maiden Moto GP win last year at the Brickyard - where I witnessed him secure his maiden Big Bikes Pole Position.
Spies has gone onto win his first MOTOGP win at Assen, in the Netherlands earlier this season, whilst Edwards has proven his Ironman status by competing with a broken collarbone, which seemingly is the de riggour injury of the season, while Hayden’s struggled on the somewhat recalcitrant ‘DUC. (Ducati)
These ‘Scooters are absolutely MIND BLOWING - not to mention their Jockey’s aboard them and there’s action aplenty all weekend long, as I can still vividly see those FREAKINH’ rockets hurtle by at speeds of 160-180+ mph standing along the front straightaway’s catch fencing just yards away from the track, with Ralph Sheheen claiming these Dudes reach a terminal velocity of 200MPH before grabbing the breaks and tipping over up to 60-degrees into Turn-1; INSANE! So go check it out if you get a chance or watch it “live” on SPEED...
