Oh dear, 12th in the standings on that bike as well, it is a proven winner over the last few seasons as well. Little disappointing results this year James, I hope you can improve and put it on the box, but I feel your missing the edge to put it on the line and fight for the podium places??!!.. The jury is still out, but I fear you'll be getting pressure from Backmarker if your out of the top 6 this weekend, on home turf! Good luck, dig deep, I'll be cheering for you along with all the other Brits!

The guy runs a auction in the Midlands to raise money for travel expenses. Which he says are excessive.

Then goes on twitter before Misano to say how much fun he is having playing volleyball on the beach the week before. Not very bright!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry Rick, I hope you don't take offence to this.. but volleyball is a free sport? Not very bright? I think it's very bright to look at the free, positive things in life... but maybe that's just me :) Misano is next to the beach, these boys need a bit of down time, and there's nothing wrong having some team bonding with the Lowes boys. Maybe you don't realise all the stress that they take on, it's not easy. Take care & all the very best -Sarah x

I'll tell ya wot mate, real stress is havin that house to pay for and riding for free. Stress is training your a*se off day and night, eating sleeping and breathing bikes. Stress is not knowin whether or not your gonna come back in one piece everytime you throw your leg over a beast of a bike. Don't waste ur time arguin with a fool Sarah, not all are respectful or intelligent enough to comprehend the full extent of a racers life. You guys take care

Hey Rick...guess you have never raced at 190+ with 3 others inches from you? Also riding for free for your entertainment,and taking a chance of not walking away from a crash...no stress at all...Give it a try if there is no stress envolved,might make you appreciate what these riders do...James probably trains harder in one day then you do all year

Irrespective of who is on a bike A bike will only win races if it doesn't break down. And This bike has broke down a few times.
As for Playing Volley Ball on Misano Beach. Well Misano Beach is where the San Marino Race Circuit is. The Beach is by the Camp site where his motor home was. (Correction where his home was) THe motor home that he lives in and drives to the circuit in. Thats is why he was on Misano Beach. Most other racers will be staing in Hotels (BY Misano beach)
