Brilliant pic.
For those who care..

The year was 1988 and the 250cc GP race at Donington Park was in full swing when suddenly, Yamaha France rider Jean Philippe Ruggia was photographed tearing round a bend with his elbow scraping the ground.

This was the first time a rider ever got his elbow down and, despite never winning a championship, 'Elbows' Ruggia made racing history thanks to his lean-it-until-you-can-lean-no-more style.
