Michael Guy, 26 April 2013 12:06

The last couple of months haven’t been easy. I’ve seen my colleagues at MCN come bouncing into the office having received their long term test bikes for the year.

Michael Guy, 21 March 2011 16:50

Michael Guy, 03 April 2008 13:34

Six weeks after competing my first Enduro on the Husqvarna WR250 I managed to blow the cob webs away with a day practising last weekend.
