I have a sneaky feeling that old John might not be the force he once was at the tt this year. I hope to be proven wrong about that but i can see M Dunlop stepping up big time this year and taking a handful of wins.

Also c'mon guy... its about bloody time!

Johns cool,calm approach will keep him winning til he decides to stop. He seems to know the secret on how to ride the bike/track like no other of this era!!
Good luck to all the Tt can't come quick enough

I dont want to hear of any rider hurt but as i stated in a different posting Michael Dunlop will make McPint think of what pace he has to ride at and in get the feeling that McPint no longer wants to ride on the limit or over it.
This the area that Michael will push to.

Maybe so Mr. g's'n'rs ,but only 0.77% voted for William Dunlop ? not even 1 in a 100 ? Very strange , William might surprise quite a lot of people at TT2013 , he does not blow his own trumpet like some others, but he is very quick. Time will tell.Its great to see so much eager anticipation anyway !

McPint is relaxed, he's comfortable in his skin, he knows the bike and the team well, he knows the TT tarmace like no other (except perhaps Molyneux). The Legends team place great faith in him, and they are far better judges than any of us. So, in 2013-
Mcpint will add to his tally of TT wins.
Mickey D will probably win one.
Guy won't, Josh won't. Cummins doubtful.
Anstey, Cam Donald, can never be discounted.
William D will probably score in the smaller classes.
The spectators will all be winners - it's that great an event.

the Dunlop boys I feel are the biggest threat. Mickey D won't have to run about spannering the bikes and William has been given a few rocketships. The boys are young, hungry and already proven winners. I like Mcpint a lot but feel he will have to be really on his game to see off thse boys never mind Martin, Cummins and Brookes who will make sure he also gives himself a good chance.

The Dunlop boys will be a big threat in the smaller classes IMO, but McG will still be the man to beat in the Superbike and Senior. I wouldn't rule out Michael Rutter either on a competitive bike

Sadly, Mickey D WILL be running around. He has his own bikes entered in the smaller classes and will be splitting his time between the Legends pit and his own. What's more, from what I've seen he seems to be a bit hyper-active. Pleasant to talk to, but always on the go.
As for William, he's a much more relaxed person and will certainly go well if the bike is as good as it appears to be.
