BSB » 'Chuffed to bits' Walker back on grid in 2011


Completely off topic.. I sat in the company of an elderly butcher yesterday.. He told me of the days he used to race in the TT and the people he'd raced against.. Not being a fantastic historian of the sport, I didn't know who he was.. I decided when he'd left my desk to check him out on the internet.. His name Brian Ball 2nd 1968 Senior TT to Giacomo Agostini, finished 12th in 1968 Grand Prix season.. Not once did he boast of his achievements or results just the people he'd raced against.. Nice guy very humble and it was a pleasure to spend an hour in his company..

BSB » 'Chuffed to bits' Walker back on grid in 2011


Nothing better to start a fierce debate on here than Chris Walker getting a seat in BSB.. Should the seat have gone to a younger rider?? Would that younger rider have attracted a main sponser?? Two sides to every story!! I don't think it's disrespectful to say Chris has had his day coz he quite clearly has.. Even the most hardened of his fans aren't expecting him to win the title or stand on the podium every week.. Personally I think he's good for the series.. He is a "yardstick" that up and coming riders can measure themselves against.. He'll pick up points and keep the middle order honest.. If that's enough for his fans then fair enough!!

BSB » Dennis Hobbs bolsters BMW EVO ranks


@ Bemused.. Quote from UK Dread.. "The ugliest man in motorsport, perhaps if he lost the earrings and had a facelift he would get back into MotoGP".. How does that compare to my comment about Garth?? My Garth comment made no mention of Nick Medds ability at all, so what's your problem?? He does look like Garth from Waynes World without the glasses!! I never mentioned Garth or Nick were ugly or anything derogatory about either of them.. Just that Nick looks like Dana Carveys character.. If you've put 2 and 2 together and made 5 that's your problem.. You, Awesome, Nick and Stuart do seem to have a bit of a complex about me..

BSB » Valentine: There's more to come


He's stuck his head up out of the trenches to be shot at.. If this works out for him he moves onwards and upwards.. If it doesn't he has nowhere else to go.. If nothing else he deserves respect for that.. Personally I'm not a fan but I am looking forward to seeing him at work.. I don't think he'll win the title but I'm sure he'll be a threat.. I just think Brookes is in a better position for Suzuki, better track knowledge, better bike, better back up.. Not so sure if Brookes the better rider but I am sure he's the one with the least to prove.. If Hopper is the better rider he still has all the other gaps to bridge.. If he can do that then he deserves to be back on the world scene.. And I won't mind eating the slice of humble pie coming my way..
