Malaysia MotoGP Recap with Tony Goldsmith
Before MotoGP became more about egos and politics than anything else (the entire sordid affair is explained here by David Emmett), photographers were in the heat, humidity and haze documenting the event as they would any other race weekend.

Above, Dani Pedrosa, the weekend’s star both of results and of composure, charges around Sepang with one of the circuit’s distinctive architectural features in the background.
Stefan Bradl rides through a haze “caused by thick smoke created from the burning of forest and peat fires on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo to clear old crops and new land for the production of pulp, paper and palm oil.” (CNN)
