Kit review: Alpinestars Apex Drystar gloves

Alpinestars Apex Drystar gloves, £74.95Miles covered/time: 5000/five monthsWhat’s good? These gloves have got the nicest lining I’ve ever felt, they’re like a fur coat and it’s tempting to put your hand inside them, even when you don’t need to…They’re warm and waterproof and not too bulky, so it’s easy to feel the controls well when you’re riding, even riding quickly ...

Bemsee Premier 1000 racing blog: Brands Hatch

I’ve never talked to myself so much during a race – I’ve never needed to. I’m telling myself to sit forward on the tank to keep the weight over the front wheel into the corners, shouting to let go of the front brake to keep up the corner speeds and urging myself to make the rear squirm out of each ...

Michael Neeves blog – Racedays, Jerez

I’ve just come back from riding my BMW Park Lane S1000RR at Racedays in Jerez. It was my final ever outing on No.5, after two years racing it in MRO. What is/who are Racedays? Racedays is a three-day trackday with a difference, as you get the chance to qualify and compete in a number of races. It’s all the best ...

Michael Neeves MRO Powerbike Blog – Final round, Brands.

It wasn’t quite the perfect end to a perfect season, but it was damn close. After the chequered flag was waved for the final race of the MRO Powerbike season last Sunday at Brands, I lost the championship to worthy winner and fellow BMW rider, Rob McNealy, by a hundredth of a second – less than a bike length. I’m ...

MRO Powerbike blog: Silverstone 18/19 June 2011

That was the best weekend’s racing I’ve ever had –three out of three wins (two in the dry, one in the wet). I just scraped the fastest lap of the weekend on Silverstone’s national circuit, ahead of fast-charging Mike Goodfellow on his superstock-spec Carbontek BMW S1000RR and set the lap record for the MRO Powerbike. Strangely, it’s my first ever ...

Michael Neeves MRO Powerbike blog: Brands Hatch GP

It’s been a busy old May. I rode my GSX-R750 to Le Mans to watch the MotoGP, tested a Taiwanese 50cc supermoto, carried out a Tuono group test, spent four days at Brands Hatch instructing and racing and then back to the Kent track to test Keith Flint’s new Moto2 bike. It’s back on the 750 for my first ever ...

MCN to race BMW S1000RR in MRO Championship

We may have just clicked into 2011, but my racing season has well and truly started. I’m pleased to be riding for the BMW Park Lane team again on their rapid BMW S1000RR in the MRO championship. Instead of racing with the Stocksport 1000 boys, like last year, I’m returning to the open-class Powerbike championship. The best thing about MRO ...
