I had so much damn fun. I had the best seat in the house (T8 corkscrew). I watched practice and qualifying sessions up close. I worked Saturday at T8 and part of Sunday but after 11am or so me and my cousin said screw it and left. We had access to the whole track with the cornerworker jersey that the FIM provided. We were so stoked. We got into the ama paddock area but figured that was it. We went around the motogp paddock and to our surprise we had access to it. We were even more stoked. We couldnt beleive that we had access to the whole damn track. We saw a lot of the moto gp riders, it was funny cus hella people didnt know who half of them were. I got John Hopkins and the one and only Nicky Hayden's signatures on my FIM Moto GP jersey. Saw Xaus, Elias, Tamada, and a bunch of others. After Nicky took the checkered flag me and my cousin went to out to the Podium area, very few people had access to this area, and watched the whole celebration. Nicky was so damn happy he started doing a lil dance, that was funny. At one point Nicky started to cry as the National anthem was playing. I bet it felt so good for him to finally win a top podium and in the US. The crowd was chanting nicky so damn loud.

Theres so much going through my head right now that I'm leaving so much stuff out. Here are a couple of pics, i took so many.


Oh, it was cool meeting you moeman and snapshot. Took a pic with both them. i saw SteveO and Schwing out there too.

I'm sitting in my hotel in Salinas right now.

BlueBlur don't say just kidding if that's what you're really thinking. Could be very true. Nice to see you were there to do a job nando, and apparently just said screw it and took off, then abused the priviledge you were given to do that job.

Nice pics though!

I understand. but there was way more than enough cornerworkers. Once in a lifetime opportunity, and so I took advantage of it.

By the way, i did work, for the superbike race, Josh Hayes took out Neil Hodgeson in the corkscrew on the opening lap and I went down to pick up the duc. my cousin picked up the kawasaki. We should be on TV for that one. Anyone see it?

haha, you guys all suck, officially.

Nando... no shame at all for leaving your job dude. Can not fault you for that opportunity, not like that's ever going to happen again. That's one that'd be worth getting fired for! haha

I still can't even believe how fortunate you were... this is just crazy... 2 weeks ago you had no idea did you?

and P.S.
That yellow yami is freakin sweet.

I was visiting friends in SLO for the weekend and couldn't make the GP, but I was very puzzled when I saw a ton of bikes on the road around 7:30-8:00pm. Then I remembered about the GP like a tard (I even watched it on TV earlier). Was great seeing so many bikes around.

too bad him and half the other guys were giggling like school girls when the guy messed up the anthem...what about the whole arm across your chest thing or taking off your hat (CE). All of the American riders seemed pretty disrespectful during the singing of the Anthem...they were talking, not singing along and generally goofing off.

As far as carrying the flag goes...its cool he did it but you know if someone hands you one you pretty much have to...well unless your Hopkins who refused one when a fan gave it to him....
