Last weekend was the 24 Hours of Le Mans Open link in a new window motorcycle race, and what a race it was. For the lucky ones who could follow it on TV, you'll know what I meant, it was pretty intense, even for a 24 hour endurance race. It's been a while since a Kawasaki Open link in a new window motorcycle won the race, but number 11 led the race, more or less, from start to finish.

Here are some photo impressions of the race, and below you'll find a video clip of an incident in the pits (I don't know how long the video will stay on-line).
