BSB blog:The battle of the BSB Yamahas

I’m not surprised that GSE racing issued a press statement, saying they’ve ‘postponed’ their planned testing schedule in Europe. Things have been very quiet on the Airwaves Yamaha front this winter but, from what I heard last week, their GSE Racing technicians were finally in Italy, building bikes. Get all the latest BSB news I’d heard there had been delays ...

Blog: Can Hydrex Honda step up a gear?

Last Friday’s Hydrex Honda launch was an impressive show of team owner Shaun Muir’s long-term commitment to the sport. The team’s new workshop facility in Guisborough is by far one of the most outstanding all new facilities in BSB and the fact that Muir has a three-rider team and is building seven bikes is an impressive display of the team’s ...

BSB bikes under development

I’ve had the privilege to go behind the closed doors of some British Superbike team workshops this past couple of weeks, namely Relentless Suzuki, Cresent Suzuki, and Rob Mac Racing Yamaha and it’s fascinating to see the 2009 bikes gradually coming together.

Interesting!” That was the emotional outburst I heard in the office from a non-racing person as ...

Video: The special status of the North West 200

Back in the office after two days in Northern Ireland, primarily for Thursday’s North West 200 launch and I was trying to explain just how the race is revered in the province. The launch festivities kicked off at around 10.00am but by then there were already pictures flying through cyber-space to serve websites worldwide of bikini-clad Miss Northern Ireland, draped ...

BSB blog 2009 – plenty of sub plots

It may be a long way off to the start of the British Superbike season – and it’ll seem even longer with a predicted cutback in pre-season testing. But that hasn’t stopped talk in the MCN office about BSB’s prospects for 2009. There’s no denying that in the past two seasons, BSB hasn’t just lost its top riders, it’s lost ...
