Another shot of "Gorgeous George" negotiating the Melbourne Hairpin on Saturday. He is a rider in the classic style, neat and tidy with no feet dangling or elbows stuck out like some others, but has a habit of falling off. He is currently second in the championship behind his team mate.
He fell while leading Sundays race, handing the lead to his team mate Valentino Rossi until he also fell.
Unlike most of my images, this one was at a slower shutter speed and surprisingly it worked. I'm not good at panning, but practise makes perfect I'm told.
