Brookes prepares for Mallory return

“I was the new guy and people didn't know me,” he added. “I was trying hard and crashed into the regulars and they were quick to criticise – I'd react like that, they were not acting unnaturally.

“When people got a better understanding of what I was trying to achieve and that I am not gung-ho or trying to ride outside my abilities that helped. If it happened now, not last year, maybe they would be less critical.

“The British crowd is coming round. I am trying to be myself and ride the way I do. If I try to ride differently then I may not ever have got to BSB. I want to win and constantly push and that is what has brought me to this point in the sport and is how I will carry on and go further. The British people know this and I've got a lot more support now; they know I am a fun guy who gives it his all.”

Last year I thought he was a dangerous knob. Then watched the Mallory incident on the end of season BSB CD set a few times & came to the conclussion it was a seriously optimistic thing to try but wasn't red mist insane like I thought at the time. I reckon the ban was as much about appeasing fans hacked off about the Guintolli incident (which I admit I'm still doubtful about) and the number of fallers rather than the level of mistake the bloke made. From his showing this year I'm pretty positive about him. Sure he's a bold, fast rider, but the risks he's taking are pretty calculated which kind of goes with top rider territory. I reckon BSB's way better with Brookes than without.
