Motegi, 2015 - mini-bike race

The most important race of the weekend already took place on Thursday, with Dani (somewhat unsurprisingly) emerging as the victor.

This race had it all: tight battles, brutal crashes, riders cutting corners, a dramatic finish and a podium including a satellite rider (Bradley Smith), a new factory rider (Aleix Espargaro), and an alien (Dani Pedrosa).

This is racing.
