Suzi puts MGP in turmoil !!
Sensational, unbelievable headlines in MCN !! Front page , back page and 3 full pages inside!!
What the hell has happened in MGP ??
Rossi signed with Harley Davidson?- Nah, bigger than that. Foggy out of retirement to team up with Stoner? Nah, bigger than that. Honda bring back the NR500, this time with square pistons? Nah, bigger than that.
SUZI PERRY QUITS MOTO GP !!
My God that is sensational news. I bet the 4 big factories are in an emergency meeting to discuss the event and what implications there will be. Can MGP continue without her??
On a more serious note, MCN have got this story completely out of proportion. As far as I'm concerned a simple single column on page 54 would have been ample. Quite honestly, I'm glad to see the back of her. Another presenter who thinks she is more important than the riders she's interviewing. Her knowledge of bikes and racing is very limited and never seemed to ask questions we all want to know. Eurosport's coverage is far better. Toby and Julian, not forgetting Neil Spalding, are the tops by a long way. A pity they lost Randy Mamola as he was excellent, with first hand experience, very knowledgeable and entertaining. That's something bimbos like Suzi Perry will never be. With Charlie Cox gone, now only Steve Parrish to go.( He's more suited to commentating on funerals.) Remember that interview with Rossi in the IOM? Parrish treated him like a kid of 10. Things might be looking up at the Beeb, but I doubt it knowing how they do it.
My choice for a replacement -Harriet Harman, she could make sure the grid is 50% female riders or Anne Robinson, she can keep an eye open for the weakest chain link, better still Ester Rantzen, she can make sure the bikes comply with H&S. Who cares if they know nothing about racing!
James Hayden would be great -seriously!
