MotoGP at Laguna Seca, 2007: Ready to Race

Qualifications were in yesterday and practice runs wrapped earlier this morning, West Coast time, for today's Cali motofest at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Post for the MotoGP US Grand Prix is 2:00 and the AMA Superbike at 3:45. The MotoGP field is as about as tight as eight guys could be without a class ring — with the top eight splitting one second among them. Bumbeck was there with his lens and a talent for subterfuge to capture a gallery of practice runs earlier today. We're heading out to a decent vantage point, loaded down with SPF 1,092 and a camel.
