RR » Farquhar and Amor to race at TT 2014


The north west 200 is traditionally a TT shakedown event. I expect to see both men at other road races in 2014, Amor is already entered at the Ulster GP. Will Ryan be able to resist the lure of renewing his fierce rivalry with Michael Dunlop or taking back the supertwins crown from Jeremy McWilliams? I suspect not. As 5 wins in a day at the North West and multiple TT winner Philip MaCallen said on tv at the 2013 North West races, racing and winning becomes a very powerful addiction and it's hard to step away from it into normal routine life. I hope Ryan and Keith Amor ride within their limits and come home safe.

RR » Farquhar and Amor to race at TT 2014


Ryan's return to competition is a surprise to me having read and been moved by the strength of his comments In the press following the death of his racer uncle who was riding one of Ryan's bikes when he crashed. Like most racers he said he hadn't ever thought of the effect that racing or a serious accident would have on a riders family and having experienced it himself first hand following his uncle's tragic accident, had decided it wasn't something he wanted to subject his own family to any more. Stepping away from racing into the role of bike builder and team manager has allowed him to stay in the sport without the personal risk but has probably been frustrating as he is a very competitive man. He has undoubtedly missed the thrill of racing, perhaps more than most would as he is the most successful rider in Ireland in race win terms. To think that this is a temporary comeback for a one off race for the pair at the TT is unlikely as traditionally the North West 200 is a TT shake down

MotoGP » Paul Bird (PBM MotoGP) - Q&A


As he funds his own team he is entitled to speak his mind but he has always rubbished his riders so that's why he's not respected. His teams lack of results at world level in any championship stands against him securing an equal partnership with any manufacturer. Building their own bike and expecting it to go well in its first season is nieve. He shows little rider loyalty that's one of the reasons they won't do well. A happy rider rides better. Just look at Ben spies and the Yamaha moto gp team.
