Changing Lanes

Motogp. The Grand Prix of motorbike racing. The fastest riders in the world on the fastest machines. Overtaking is guaranteed at every race all the way through the field: the leader never finishing more than a few seconds in front of second place, normally having to fight for that first place until the last corner. The crashes are spectacular, the risks high (last week, above, three riders crashed out with broken bones). The rules are more relaxed (spectators shake hands with the riders on the slow-down lap), and the characters more flamboyant (Rossi getting off his bike on the slow-down lap to hug fans). Why did Rossi decide to stay there? Why aren’t we watching it instead?
