Have you ever dreamt of meeting your heroes in person? See them live in action? For some lucky winners this dream came true. In a BEYOND REASON online raffle, Oakley gave away a Moto GP VIP package. Here’s the report of the lucky winner, Lluís Romeu Porta from Barcelona, Spain:
Casey Stoner has fond recent memories of Laguna Seca Raceway. And he just added another to the pot. At the site where he was crowned the 2011 MotoGP World Champion, Oakley’s Australian Star claimed his fourth victory on the season and his second consecutive – topping Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa for glory in the Golden State. The two-time champ finished 32 laps in 43 minutes, 45.961 seconds from Pole – passing Lorenzo on the inside at Turn 1 on Lap 21. He was also the only elite rider in the race to choose softer tires – resulting in a careful effort to conserve them throughout the race.

We talked to one of the best, the one rider who seems to go from winning to winning in a sport where just fractions of split seconds draw the line between the first and second place.
