renzo pasolini

after a rather 'late night' [ahem], it was a rather subdued start to the day in the loveless household, mostly trying to re-hydrate with endless tea and idly flicking through one of my xmas book's, the brilliant 'italian racing motorcycles' by mick walker,renzo pasolini is obviously featured a lot and although this picture is not from the book itself, i just wanted to post it up, such a great photo from back before the publicity machines that are today's grand prix superstar's, don't get me wrong, i have the utmost respect for them, but can you imagine a modern racer just slumped against a straw-bail taking a breather without an army of p.r. people, dietecian's, physio's and brolly dolly's fussing around?
