Despite being an enormous fan of MotoGP racing, it's a motorcycle sport that has been less than competitive for a couple of years now. Even Valentino Rossi has to admit the motorcycle race has become boring. All the artificial limitations imposed on the sport, penalties for riders who dare overtake, too many technical constraints, and not enough "showman" racers makes the sport more and more difficult to watch.
It was great watching Jorge Lorenzo win the championship again, he deserved it. Seeing Casey Stoner win his home race as head-alien was cool as well. But if there's one photo that sums up the 2012 season, it's this one:
