Ellison needs to stop being so publicly grateful to all and sundry..this is bike racing, not the Oscars.
I'll be watching with interest to see if he's more aggressive and single minded this year following last seasons "after you Claude.." attitude where he was obviously faster than some in front of him, but refused to capitalise, put it all on the line and overtake..
Just making an observation about the racer, not the man.
He strikes me as a decent chap..

Perhaps he's so publicly grateful because he's a nice guy and wanted to say thanks to the team and his supporters, of which there seems to be a lot.

While Camier was on fire last year, James never once lacked commitment or the desire to win. He's got the talent that's for sure and as for the 'after you claude' attitude mentioned above..... did you watch the last Silverstone round?

Good luck to James in his quest for the title.

Remember Camier got battered by Shakey a few years ago and came back stronger the following season to win the title. I predict the same for Ellison.

The 'after you Claude' attitude is exactly how it was last year - i had ellison in my fantasy team and hence watched him closely every race - man how frustrating! honestly, nearly every race his pace deserved at least one place higher but he followed and followed and... finished :s

Hopefully he'll pull his finger out this year and get his race face on more often - rather than after the title race has finished!

Well i think the colour scheme is rather appropriate. They are selling ciggie papers and the colour scheme is red/gold/green.... they should be renamed Team SpliffHead :D

So that's settled. Really it should be white and they should set fire to one end of it then.

I don't think its a case of being too genteel, its more like strategy. He's not so bargy as a few other out there but he'll dodge weave and shove with the best of 'em when that's called for. Other times he seems to prefer a more measured approach - a lot like Easton really. And in the long run that brings in very consistent results. As good a contrast as most is with Karl Harris who he replaces (sort of).

He's not slow or lacking bottle, he's thoughtful, racing with his head more than his gut.

I believe James will come out this season with a different attitude. He knows the team,he knows the bike and knows the tracks!! Last year new bike,new team and no pratice at all. He finished in 2nd and finished with points in every race!!!This season should be a good one with some awesome racing going on.SO LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!!!

Nothing wrong with using your brain and making passes at the right time, he made the right choices and scored points in every round whilst finishing on the podium. Much easier said than done. Poor guy seems to get abused by keyboard world champions for being genuine and telling the truth.
