Maggiora is in the books too. It's been a busy weekend for riders, photographers and insiders, but the thrills that a track of this scale delivers pay off a bit for everyone.
It's amazing how the hugeness of those blind jumps, the steepness of those climbs and the sense of emptiness conveyed by the downhills of this historic track make us feel even more like amateurs than we are. It's no joke, but as a Sunday motocross rider two laps in I'd have a hard time lining them up. That's exactly the reason why we were there taking pictures and enjoying the show while the real kids were inside giving two-handed throttle.
In any case, we leave you below some of the shots we took home during the weekend, the rest of the pretty things can be found on Instagram, as usual.
