Still no confirmation he has actually slipped his discs. I personally do not belive it. You can hardly move with slipped discs let alone haul a bike around. I know bike racers are generally hard but this just smacks of sensationalism to make out he's a bit tough. A bit of a bad back due to being a little, ahem fat perhaps?

Terry you might be right about the slipped discs I don't know but he has lost a lot of weight he might look fat compared to William but he is 9 stone FFS he couldn't be too fat and doing them speeds

The 2012 Ulster Grand Prix entry must be by far the poorest quality ever. The days of any decent quality has gone for ever. So so sad for those like me who can recall the fanatastic road racing superstars of the past. Hailwood, Agostini, Ivy, Read, Saarinen, Herron, McCullough, North, Ekerold, JG Williams, Joey D, etc. etc. Makes the current entry look like clubmen.

i have 3 disc's in my spine and i move around fine it depends where it has happened really mine is upper so i get monumental back aches and agony but moving around isn't hindered although at those speeds it might be a tad different :P
