Hello, (and goodbye), from a hot, humid Sepang!
The long haul three week flyaway of bike GPs are now done. I've missed the birth of a daughter and my wedding anniversary but seen some incredible racing in some fantastic places. I had never been to Japan or Australia and will take home fond memories of my visit. But, despite enjoying life in Asia generally, the penultimate round 17 in Malaysia was an endurance test against the steamy elements for everyone on the track and beside it. It's not the 36c heat that gets you, it's the 70% humidity that goes with it!

So after today's 36 hours of work and travel I'm looking forward to a week at home before the final MotoGP of 2014 in Valencia.
