The diary of Nico Terol

Former teammate of previous Hottie Simone Corsi and punished "bad boy" of the Assen weekend Nico Terol has shown steady progress in the 125cc championship since last season. And with good results riders naturally get more popular and people start wanting to know everything about them.
But this is no problem for Nico who even has a little video diary with Spanish TVE's popular MotoGP series "Paddock GP". You can watch all the episodes on Nico's website and see for yourself that he's a cheeky little thing...

Simone Corsi - Change your team, not your smile

Freshly out of the Jack & Jones WRB Team and into the Fontana Racing Team, Italian 125cc rider Simone Corsi had a busy two weeks since the Catalunya GP. After a more than difficult start to the season the runner-up from 2008 decided a change of air would be the best solution for everyone.
And it's been certainly a good solution for us, because it brought us the first smiley pics of him in quite a long time. Now hopefully results will follow. :)

Homeboy: Jasper Iwema

Since Hugo van den Berg left the 125cc championship last year, there's now a new Flying Dutchman in the class and his name is Jasper Iwema.
The 19-year-old from Hooghalen is the only Dutch rider in the championship at the moment and this weekend's GP in Assen should be something really special for the homeboy. Best of luck. :D

James Toseland - Prime British Beef

Setting aside the youngsters for now, and with another MotoGP weekend coming up, it seems a good idea to do a post on Tech-3 rider and British Beef, James Toseland - shown here in the middle of one of his many many fitness routines. Lucky us... :-)

The *Other* Loris...

Not mr Capirossi, but Mr Baz - Loris Baz... a slightly scuffed up but rather sweet looking thing here, in a pic from last weekend's Superstock 1000 at Misano. And another good reason to watch all kinds of bikesport...!

Marc Marquez - Natural talent

Some people are just much more photogenic than others. Marc Marquez definitely belongs in that category.

Axel Pons - Smile like you mean it. Or not.

Finding a picture of Axel Pons smiling is about as rare as snow in the summer. But since he has absolutely mastered the grumpy & scruffy look, he doesn't really need to smile to be hot....

Raffaele De Rosa: How to cloud your face, but not your beauty

Raffaele de Rosa does not only know how to ride like a stuntman, he's also a master of accentuating his beauty even when half of his face is covered. In this case it puts emphasis on his amazingly long eyelashes.
Eyelashes, you ask? Yes, I said it. Eyelashes. That's how we roll. :P

Introducing: Eric Hübsch

19-year-old Eric Hübsch from Liechtenstein is a known face in the International German Championship for quite a few years now and appeared as a wildcard at a few German GPs.
His last name Hübsch means "pretty" or "beautiful" in English. And rarely has there been a last name more fitting for his owner.

Welcome to Catalunya

It's sunny at a MotoGP round again, who'd have thought?
But Andrea Dovizioso is prepared for everything and brought his sunglasses just in case.

Roll on the weekend already. :D

By Special Request: Jorge Lorenzo

Following our little Alvaro Bautista special last weekend, we had a request from Jester1989 for some snaps of Jorge Lorenzo. And we're basically nice people so how could we refuse?
Here we go then...

That last pic is the cover of his biography / autobiography (recently released as an English translation) called "My Story So Far"; co-authored by Ernest Riveras Tobia, which you can buy here from Duke...

VIDEO: Training Collection

Racing stars don't only have to know how to twist the throttle, they also have to be in great physical shape to get through a race, squeezing out the best from the machine. While the best training is of course riding a motorcycle, there are various other things they do to prepare and stay fit.

The first video shows Tom Lüthi, Sandro Cortese and Stefan Bradl in the preseason preparation - skiing, running, working out in the gym, juggling, physiotherapy and more. Have a look how our Hotties maintain their fit bodies. ;)

And Spanish Bancaja Aspar rider Sergio Gadea had an unforgettably heroic ride to victory at Qatar last season while suffering from a dislocated collarbone. The video shows Sergio's recovery training from that injury, including comments from his trainer Rafa Olcina.

MotoGP Ink

We all know bikers are synonymous with tattoos, and our 250cc hunks are no different.
And as you can see, the boys have everything from their race numbers to personal mascots etched onto their skin.

And we certainly don't mind when they show their skin... erm, tats, off for photo opps like these. Not at all.
