Doug Nye: Mastering the elements in motor racing

Glued today to the Eurosport TV coverage of the Giro d’Italia cycle race I was struck by the very real courage shown by some of the leading riders as they plummeted down the descent side of the Stelvio Pass on the Italian-Swiss border. The pursuing motorcycle camera view was pretty darned breathtaking as they shot down through the sweeping curves and the often wet-patched hairpins, rocketing down like a dose of salts, looking almost like the ball in a pinball machine.
