This weekend, MotoGP, the premier motorcycle racing series in the world, will descend upon Monterey, Calif., for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix. But before all the action starts at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, MotoGP racer Stefan Bradl of Germany brought his LCR Honda race bike to San Francisco to warm up for the upcoming event. Bradl, a rookie in MotoGP, is looking forward to tackling "The Corkscrew," a notoriously difficult twisting, off-camber downhill section at Laguna Seca, for the first time. To prepare, he took his motorcycle down the crookedest street in the U.S. - Lombard Street in the Russian Hill area of San Francisco.
