Superb well informed article, particularly towards the end, the questions get better and better and responses seem both honest and at times surprising. More like this please.

Nearly putting william dunlop into the wall at church in the nw200 - and william apparently made too much of it i right. You dont ride like that on the roads. What comes across in this interview is the north west 200 is a nice pay day nothing more.

@Mathers Cross - To get a 'nice pay day' you first have to win, in the same way as Shakey got a nice pay day at the last race at Brands. William just thought that he had a sufficient speed advantage to not properly check his mirrors, which you should always do if you've got Seeley behind you at the NW200. If he wants to avoid this in future he should either be further ahead or check behind him, for me it was the pass of the race.

@ Mr Pirelli did you see the incident. Seeley dived up the inside which was fair enough, the problem was that he brushed of speed sufficently to turn but he made no attempt to get near the apex he deliberately ran wide giving william no choice but to give up or hit a wall.

He had the pass made and the only reason to push william so far wide was to make sure william couldnt fight back.

Road racing is to dangerous for deliberately aggressive actions that are not needed.

@Paul - The last thing I want is that a rider gets injured, but I still think that William should have been looking in his mirrors more. Alastair was faster on the day and deserved the win and if William was going to ride defensively at the accepted passing spots, then Alastair would need to improvise. It can't have been that dangerous, nobody got hurt and the stuarts were happy with the move.
