All on-track activity was cancelled Friday at Twin Ring Motegi due to poor weather conditions, but that didn’t put a damper on the festivities happening in the MotoGP paddock.
The Japanese crowd, which is known for being dedicated and loyal, decided to stick around despite the lengthy delay. Several riders – including Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa – rewarded them by signing autographs and taking photographs.
They quickly turned a dreary day in to one filled with life and laughter. It was truly an outstanding moment, and is reflected in many of the photographs circling the garage.
