Good for guy staying in a good team hope he gets his win this year. Hopefully they can get Connor sorted should be a good team for the NW200 and TT this year I think that if he stays fit he could push for wins this year.

I hope he finally gets a win, or 4... He has the ability, just somehow, never brings his A-game at the TT.

The man is a right laugh. Unfortunately we only see replays of the TT about 2 months AFTER it's happened in South Africa. We see NOTHING else. No Macau, NO NW200, N O T H I N G ! ! !

Go GUY!!!!

Guy is over-rated in my opinion...don't think he has a TT win in him, anytime he's leading he seems to lose the plot. As for his 'I'm not a celebrity, I'm a truck mechanic' stance and 'people hound me for autographs' if it bothers you so much stop doing TV shows!!! The man is becoming a parody of himself!!!

No matter if he likes it or not Guy's "celebrity" status means having him in a team brings media attention.
Media attention brings sponsors.
Sponsors bring funds.
Funds mean a team can run better machinery.
Better machinery means a rider can run at the front bringing more media attention.

Guy has the talent to win on the island and anyone who says he does not is fooling themselves. The fact is that we are spoiled at the moment having so many excellent riders capable of winning this means its even harder for one rider to do so unlike some years in the past where you almost knew who would win before racing started.

He's got some super tough competition on Legend Hondas to contend with first.
I'm sure he can win just has to have the cards fall into place though.
As for those knocking him for his TV shows, Give him a break he's only trying to further his career to which I think he's quite good

@Wolfy35. So Guy has the ability to win a TT as long as there aren't better riders racing against him? lol...that's pure class!!! By that reckoning the rider that came last in any race last year has the ability to win a TT as long as we aren't spoilt by having 40+ better riders out there lol

@ Stu. I'm not knocking him for doing TV...I'm knocking him for doing tv then giving off when people look for his autographs and call him a celebrity..He's not a celebrity he's just a truck mechanic that races motorbikes and has appeared in 1 man and his dog, TT closer to the edge, the boat that Guy built, How Britain worked, dare-devils, the gadget show...oh and models for Dainese and Red Torpedo lol
