Dorkins, to expect Josh to be anywhere near a podium place at the TT next year is very wrong. Josh won't even expect great things himself, or at least I hope not. For him to even try and go for the podium in his first TT it will only end one way. Every rider will tell you it takes 3 years to learn the place, after that we will see.

You say a top level track rider would thrash the TT regulars?, and comparing Josh to McGuinness, Anstey, Donald, Cummins, Hutchy, Johnson, Farquhar or the Dunlop brothers etc...dream on.

Lol @dorkins 2 completely different disciplines, as for being 3 levels below that of BSB how come when Nicky Hayden did a lap he came out saying he couldn't believe how fast the marshalls were, would love to know what he would of said if Hutchy was on a fast one and not pratting about doing wheelies alongside him.

Brookes won't do anything on the road, the only reason he'll beat people is due to machinery advantage over the amateur racers. He's dangerous in BSB, I'm just scared he's gonna kill someone on the road with the way he rides.

GOOD ON HIM . I hope he has a safe and fun TT . He has now gone way up in my estimation for Racing in the worlds greatest road race . Better to do it than sit in an armchair wishing you had . He will be very quick as well .
