Michelin v Pirelli

I’ve spent this week getting to know the new Pirelli Angel GT tyres I fitted on Monday. I’ve been using my bike for commuting to work and the other day I rode the 320-mile round trip down to Ramsgate and back to see my brother Ben. We took a couple of days off and did a car trackday at the ...

The first session of the afternoon arrived and I headed out with Maria Costello MBE to get some idea of where I was going. Silverstone is so huge, I was truly lost, no idea when, where and at what speed to turn ...

Staff bikes: Ducati 848 Challenge Racer – showroom to race ready in 24 hrs

Wednesday 2pm, this shiny red Ducati 848 was sitting innocently in Moto Rapido Ducati’s showroom in Winchester.
