Did I spot a zebra on the track?

It may sounds like question Nick Harris would ask it during a random broadcast, but hold on, it's actually not a zebra, it's Mattia Pasini in "camouflage", mucking around with his vintage scooter, trying to go unnoticed...

Red Leathers, Blue Blood

Can we include the British royal family's very own little ginger hobbit on this site?
You betcha!!! Prince Harry took to the track at this weekend's British GP at Donington on the Ducati 2-seater riding pillion to Randy Mamola.
That means he qualifies at least as an 'honorary' MotoGP Hottie... ;-)

Jason O'Halloran; Hot From Down Under

Hailing from Wollongong, home of former World Champion Wayne Gardner, Jason O’Halloran began racing in 2002 and success soon followed, finishing runner-up in the 125cc Australian Championship a year later. He soon progressed into the Australian Supersport Championship, and, after placing 7th and 3rd in 2005 and 2006, he dominated the 2007 series, taking 7 race wins and 3 lap records on board the Yamaha Racing Team YZF-R6.
He also deputised for injured countryman Kevin Curtain in the Yamaha World Supersport Team, finishing a highly creditable 12th at the Czech Republic round at Brno.

For 2008, O’Halloran competed in the Australian Superbike Championship for the Teknic Honda Racing squad, his fifth year as part of an official distributor backed team.
In addition, he impressed the Japanese hierarchy greatly at the Suzuka 8-Hours, where he finished 6th on the Moriwaki-backed machine alongside current BSB star Cal Crutchlow and Tetsuya Yamaguchi. He also rode for SMT Honda in the 2008 season in British Superbikes, where he continues in 2009.

Joan Olive: Model Rider

If there's one thing we at MotoGP Hotties love, its a posed, studio photoshoot of our fave hunks. And Joan Olive was nice enough to spoil us with some beauties when his new website went live recently.

Pol Espargaro is "The One"

Ohlala... Sometimes you just gotta love advertisements with MotoGP stars.
Here it's 18-year-old Pol Espargaro posing for his watch sponsor 01 The One, getting shirt- and headless in the process.

30+ Appreciation Post

In the world of professional athletes time passes by differently. Not only is it structured by seasons instead of years, but what counts as a very young age in the "normal" world is average for athletes while the age around and above 30, when normally the biggest developments happen in one's life, is considered retirement time for an athlete.
Many of the current MotoGP Hotties have not passed the mark of 20, let alone 30. But being older than the big 3-0 does not prevent people from being hot even though the general craze for youth tries to tell us differently. So this post shall celebrate the MotoGP Hotties aged 30+ and show that hotness does not disappear with age by any means. On the contrary - it stays with the real men and developes further, starting to show in more than just a pretty face and a fit body.

Smile Of The Day: Graeme Gowland

A slightly lesser-known Brit for you this time (though certainly no less hot than any other so far...) and another great contender in our ongoing "Smile of the Day" set... British Superbikes rider Graeme Gowland.
Nicknamed "Gowla", he comes from Hexham in Northumberland, and is racing in 2009 alongside Chris Walker in the Motorpoint Henderson Yamaha Team. British Under 21 Motocross Champion back in 2004, he's come a long way - competing in the Virgin Mobile Cup Championship, Spanish Supersport and World Supersport.

The smile of Dani Pedrosa

Told you.

Congratulations to Dani, a well deserved win. :D

Sylvain Guintoli - Get well soon

Frenchman Sylvain Guintoli has been seriously injured only about a month ago during the sighting lap for the BSB championship at Donington Park and he'll be out of racing for at least another one or two months. Before the horrific incident where Josh Brookes inexplicably ran into him Sylvain looked like a strong contender to at least challenge Leon Camier for the title. We hope Sylvain can recover soon and get back to his old strength and until he comes back to the racing scene we have to keep ourselves busy with some great pictures of him like the one above.

Smile of the Day: Dani Pedrosa

Yes, we know the tiny Spaniard has a reputation for not smiling ever. But let us show you a few examples to demonstrate just how wrong that allegation really is...

Oh hello there, sexy...

You're looking good too, Randy...

Future champions, future Hotties - Part 2

Following the first part of our "discovery" of young talent, here are a few more sparkling stars who might become the next big thing.

Patrick "PJ" Jacobsen
The 16-year-old American won about every title the AMA has to offer in the 50cc to 85cc classes plus a few in Dirt Track and Supermoto, just to make sure. With last year's wildcard appearance for the 125cc Bancaja Aspar Team in Indianapolis he's also been the youngest American to ever compete in the MotoGP championship. Jacobsen currently runs in the 125cc Spanish Championship for Team Aspar and is set to run in a few more wild card appearances this year.

Daniel Ruiz
17-year-old Ruiz is in his sophomore year in the Red Bull Rookies Cup, but so far the Spaniard had trouble to improve on his results from last season.

Cameron Beaubier
The only American currently riding in the 125cc world championship has gone through an excellent riding school, being one of the chosen ones for the MotoGP Academy last year after competing in the Red Bull Rookies Cup in 2007. With this wealth of experience it's no surprise that the fast kid from Roseville already arrived at the highest level, and this at just 16 years of age.

Alejandro Pardo
Pardo is in his first season for the Red Bull Rookies Cup after winning every single race of the Mini GP 70cc Italian Championship on his way to the 2008 title. So far he's holding up well against more experienced riders and looks to improve even more as the season goes on.
