The first time I saw Jamie race was at Cadwell Park and he was on a Durex sponsored Suzuki. I thought he was an amazingly talented rider - fast, fearless and mad!. He has always come across as very likable, down to earth and a right good laugh! My only regret is that he didn''t have the success of Carl Fogarty. I know who I''d prefer to have been a multi World champion - the one from Yorkshire! He did have a bit of a good do though! Thanks for the entertaining races Jamie and I''m looking forward to reading the book.

I first saw him at Darley Moor on a 125 MBA, it was really obvious that he had the talent to go far. We used to call him Osram cos he had a head that looked like a light bulb :)

I was once stood in a queue in a cafe in HAWES and the guy in front turned to me and started talking about motorbikes and racing etc.(I was dressed in my trail riding gear),I remarked that I thought I knew him and he said "I'm Whitham" and continued to tell me how he was getting on with his cancer treatment. About 2 years later I was trail riding in north yorkshire with a bunch of lads and one was missing so we went back to find him and he was being pulled out of a bog by Whitham and his mates.We stood around talking and I mentioned to Whitham that we had met previously and he replied "Yes in that cafe in Hawes" I was very impressed that he remembered me.

I once saw Jamie Whitham coming out of a museum in Germany with a friend. I asked him if the museum was interesting and he said it was brilliant and I carried on walking. I shouted out ''Good Luck'' for the race tomorrow'' and he looked surprised. He should back ''Thanks a lot'' and I was told I shouldnt have done that as you should never say that to a rider. The next day he came off in the race and I got the blame :rolleyes:. So we never wish riders good luck anymore. :blush:
