Morning all, how’s it going?


Sorry I’ve been a bit slack on the blog front, I’ve been beavering away at work and getting a few miles in on the old push bike. I was up at Dolby Forest last Sunday morn. I even managed to drag the farmer’s daughter out of her bed at half five in the morn for a ride out. Anyway, it’s nearly the end of my hardcore push biking, except for the first NPS round at Rehola. It falls between the BSB rounds of Brands and Oulton.


MBUK mag have got me an entry in it to do an article along the lines of road racer becoming D/H mountain biker, or something. Then it’ll be off for the road racing.


That all starts next Wednesday. Testing motor bikes that is , I’ll tell you what, I can’t wait. We’re taking all of my bikes to Spain: Superbike , Superstock and 600. The plan is to spend the thick end of our six days on track concentrating on our 600. Wer’e at Almeria and Guadix. It’s been built with all the right bits, so with it being a new model for 09 we’ll need to get it suited to me and me to it.


This was a problem last year. Our 600 didn’t turn a wheel till the NW200. So for this year it’ll have been to the moon and back by the time we get to the big road races. Hopefully this will mean we’ve got all the hiccups out of the way. The team on my side over there will be Buckle and his mate Al who works on restoring old Bentleys, so I’ll take the kettle and tea bags and we should be sorted. If I can get an internet connection over there I’ll keep you informed.


I’ve just bought a Scott Ransom push bike for the Megavalanche downhill race on Alp d’Huez. This bike is one of the trickest things I’ve ever ridden. It’s a jack of all trades so should be well suited to the Mega. Ta very much to Neil at Hope Tech for giving the chance buy her. And big thanks to Red Torpedo for their continuing support.
