“Everybody seems to think that it's a done deal and that I'll be racing in a Sidecar at the TT, but I haven't committed to it yet" - Michael Dunlop.

@ Just get on with it - Care to expand on your comment? Obviously Michael is keen to try this or he wouldn't be doing it. Nicky Crowe and Dan Sayle are no fools and wouldn't entertain this if they thought he couldn't do it. Bottom line is that you and a lot of other people are petrified of another era of Dunlop domination on the Island. Instead of fannying around with boats and sheepdogs in pathetic attempts to grab headlines, Michael eats, sleeps and breathes road racing and is passionate about keeping his family name and heritage where it belongs - at the top!!

I think youre being a little presumptious - I have already stated that I reckon Michael can ride a bike but hes so full of it I cant bear to listen to his interviews

William Dunlop on the other hand is a nice lad as well as being a very talent rider - all of which he manages without feeling the need to spout garbage at every oppertunity - Id be only too happy to see him dominating the Island......

Just get on with it.

What has Michael said in this interview that has got your frillies in such a knot? Did he brag about "working all week and racing out of his van" whilst floating around in an Aston Martin? Does he profess to be a fans favourite whilst failing to turn up for events and ignoring fans at the TT? Look a bit closer to home before condemning Michael!!

Whoever's writing Michael's PR is doing a good job - he and Dan didn't post the quickest lap of the day.

Anyway, I think it's too much to handle on top of numerous solo races and practices during the TT fortnight, no matter how talented you are. It's not fair on either team you're racing for, nor the passenger.

Decent bit of publicity for the chairs though (even if Crash couldn't be bothered to use one of the pictures from the original press release.)

BelfastBladeRider:

I felt sure this article was about Michael Dunlop and sidecars, no one, except you, is banging on about Guy Martin and his charicteristics, why the fixation? Chip on your shoulder?

Guy may talk some nonsense but its harmless and tame compared to Michael Dunlop talking about putting riders through hedges and watching porn

Claws in boys!

Well, if nothing else, it confirms to me that Michael is as mad as a bucket of frogs. That he would even think about doing this makes me doubt his sanity. One thing that I would never doubt though is his commitment to road racing in general and the Island in particular.

A PR machine cannot simulate the pure emotion that he generates and I, for one, wish him all the best if he goes ahead with this. He is the antidote to boring company cabbages like Pedrosa, Spies and the entire F1 paddock. That's why people love him and Guy Martin, to name but 2 of the TT heroes.
