strong contender for the top step

The Dunlops will give Ryan a run for his money this year. William is an awesome 250 rider, so if he can ride this bike like a 250 he will be a strong contender for the top step come race day!!!

We really need to see more variety of machinery on the island and in racing as a whole so this can only be a good thing. It doesn't matter whether I'm on the island or at a club event I get bored seeing riders wheeling out the same bike for supposedly different classes. I know there are those who will complain that multiple bikes means more expense for the teams, but in order for racing to remain financially viable you need to keep the interest of the fans. In real terms racing is more expensive now than it ever was because it's increasingly concentrated on big heavy bikes. Smaller lighter bikes not only cost less to buy, but also less to run.

I'd love to see more classes like they had a decade ago. A step in the right direction.
