Right Call

The right decision was made, and this for the detractors, do you go to the island to watch motorcycle racing or watch men riding motorcyclesaround a wet circuit?

Since when did it become just riding motorcycles in the wet? Because John McGuiness says so?  My heroes Phil McCallen and Joey Dunlop didn't ride around in the wet. They used all their skill and genius to win. John McGuiness is a legend in the dry and when the conditions arn't perfect new faces will win, that happens in all motorsport, ask any Chris Walker fans!

I don't feel any less of riders who don't like the wet but lets not take anything away from those that do.
