Isn't it time we all recognised that without visionary people such as PB, who are prepared to put their own money into projects and follow them through, this sport would not be at the level we enjoy today. He put together a world beating bike at Brands 13 years ago don't forget Also, he says what he thinks and says it straight - very few do, and I persoally respect him for that WRT James, did a reasonable job and hes a good guy - sadly he's not world class and PB has every right to try someone else
