Staff blog: The toughest test ever!

Adam Child, 03 May 2013 13:54

This year is going to epic, one I’m going to look back on for years to come and it’s mainly going to be down to my lovely ZX-6R.

MCN rides the Britten V1000

Adam Child, 24 January 2013 07:30

‘Outstanding’, ‘amazing’, and ‘work of art’ are all labels liberally applied to the exotic race bikes built by John Britten, but in reality the Britten deserves a unique accolade to celebrate its existence.

Adam Child, 19 March 2012 15:49

Oliver's Mount racing blog: Barry Sheene Festival

Adam Child, 12 July 2011 13:07

My road racing season continues but this time at the tight and twisty Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough. Oliver’s Mount is the last true road racing circuit left in the UK, nearly 2.4 miles of park road, narrow in places with a few jumps thrown in for good measure. I was there competing in the modern open class, as part of the ...

Adam Child, 22 January 2010 10:24

The Kawasaki Versys all-rounder has had a makeover for 2010 and MCN Senior Road Tester, Adam Child, is currently out in Sardinia putting it through its paces.
