Lombard Street and lectures greet Bradl on first trip to Laguna

Lombard Street and lectures greet Bradl on first trip to Laguna

LCR Honda MotoGP’s Stefan Bradl took to San Francisco's infamous Lombard Street and Treasure Island with his Honda RC213V yesterday as he prepared for the upcoming Red Bull U.S. Grad Prix at Laguna Seca this weekend.

As part of a Red Bull promotional video, the German rookie delighted crowds in true MotoGP fashion, as he wheeled his way around Treasure Island, before bringing a hefty exhaust note to the usually quaint Californian town, winding his way down twisty Lombard Street, much like he will at "The Corkscrew" come Friday.

Later in the afternoon he was joined by LCR team owner Lucio Cecchinello to take part in a conference held at the prestigious Stanford University, labelled "Embracing Risk in the Pursuit of Victory". It was a discussion about the balance between embracing risk and protection for safety, highlighting the advancements made by man and machine in one of the fastest forms of motorsports. Watch the full video of the discussion and view photos from the event on Google+ Hangout.
