Jerez Surprise

With MotoGP entering Europe after an exciting start to the season in Qatar and the America’s, the championship took a surprise turn. We saw a hint of this in America, but it was not expected to continue, at least not yet, as MotoGP went to Jerez. Jerez is a track that is usually suited to…

A Night in the Desert…

…well, that is what it should have been, but then it rained? It’s been a few days now since the first MotoGP of the season which took place under lights in Qatar. I am only writing about it now because it’s taken me this long just to gather my thoughts after what was one of…

Brace yourself, MotoGP is Coming…

Okay so maybe that play on words is getting a little old and is slightly overrated, but that what the first thing that came to mind, so I went with it. Can you freakin’ believe it though? MotoGP is back this weekend! I am, as I know many are, ridiculously excited! Enough with all these…

Kyalami Track Day

This past Saturday, the 18th of March, saw one of the very few track days that will be hosted at Kyalami for the time being. The newly renovated, world class facility and racing circuit, is a place anyone wanting to ride a motorcycle around a track will want to be and have the chance to…

WorldSBK Back With A Bang!

The WorldSBK series returned this past weekend and with a bang! The first races of the 2017 season took place at one of the most iconic and exciting tracks on any race calendar, Phillip Island. The weekend started and ended in similar fashion. Jonathan Rea and Chaz Davies dominating most of, if not all, the…

WorldSBK 2017, Season Preview

World Superbike, what can we expect from the series this year? First of all, before we get in to the riders and the potential they have shown through their pre-season performances, we have to remind ourselves of some of the changes that will be in effect. I believe that these changes will definitely be a…

MotoGP Sepang Test

It’s back! Can you even believe it? It feels like it’s been forever, well it kind of has been. The 2017 MotoGP season is truly underway with the first official test of 2017 that took place this past weekend in Sepang. Sneaking some of the footage where I could during work (don’t tell anyone), I…

Ride 2 Game Review.

If you are like me and you love motorcycles and racing, but can’t afford your own bike, this is the game for you. If you have a games console that is. I have had Ride 2 in my games collection (a whole lot of 6 games) for a month now. If you had to ask…

Guy Martin: My Autobiography (Review)

Guy Martin. Motorcycle racer, TV presenter, record breaker…truck fitter? Yes, if you had to ask Guy Martin what he did for a living, that would be his answer. At least that is the impression you are left with after you have read this book. The book is not actually just about a professional motorcycle racer,…

What Can’t He Do?

Valentino Rossi. The Doctor. The GOAT (Greatest of All Time). What can’t this guy do? He is 9-time world champion; 7 premier class titles, 250cc and 125cc. These figures make Rossi possibly the greatest motorcycle racer of all time. This is however, what most of us know him for. It does not stop there though….

The Champ Is Here!

Tuesday morning, I should have been going to work, but not this Tuesday! It is the day that I have been looking forward to for most of the year. There was a hint I got earlier on in the year that this could happen, and ever since then I’ve been waiting for the news. Brad…

A weekend of goodbyes, A week of new beginnings.

Valencia. The Circuit Ricardo Tormo. The finale of the 2016 MotoGP season. Not only that, but it was also the last time we would see many of the riders on their current machines or even in MotoGP for the time being. One of those riders was Jorge Lorenzo. Lorenzo would leave Yamaha after the weekend…
