Carlos Checa goes parachuting

During the brief summer break offered by the hectic MotoGP calendar, many riders take the rare opportunity to enjoy a relaxing holiday, soaking up the sunshine on an exotic beach or letting their hair down on a Mediterranean party island. However, Carlos Checa likes to spend his free time in a slightly different way, as he fulfils his addiction to speed and excitement thousands of metres above land. The Fortuna Yamaha rider is an experienced parachute jumper, and was happy to take motograndprix.com along for the ride.
