BSB Blog: Hey, give Tommy Hill a break

Gary Pinchin, 14 July 2009 16:47

I’ve got to say I’m a bit surprised at the amount of negativity around the web forums towards Tommy Hill getting the Worx Suzuki for Mallory BSB this weekend.I don’t really understand it.   On one hand you get people complaining that the top rides should be given to the younger riders, then when a 24-year-old gets picked, it causes a ...

BSB blog: Not over ‘till it’s over

Gary Pinchin, 06 July 2009 12:53

What’s that American cliché for not counting your chickens too quickly? It’s not over ‘till it’s over? Well it could be over a lot sooner than Leon Camier’s rivals think unless they come up with a new game plan to take the races to the Airwaves Yamaha star.  Neither Camier nor the Airwaves Yamaha team are the sort of people ...

Rutter TT Blog: "I must be one of the few glad to see the rain"

Michael Rutter, 06 June 2009 13:37

We’ve not had so much luck coming our way in the back end of this week but we certainly struck lucky with the rain today, causing the Superbike race to be postponed until Monday. If it had gone ahead as planned today I wouldn’t have been on the grid. After the engine popped a head gasket on Thursday we ordered ...

Marc Potter TT blog day 2

Marc Potter, 05 June 2009 18:16

There's a massive buzz in the Island as the TT practice kicks off for the final night before Saturday’s big race. The biggest numbers ever have already been set by Cameron Donald’s 131.457mph lap, but the biggest disappointment is that Valentino Rossi won’t be riding tomorrow. I’m not the only one who’s gutted. Hundreds of riders have booked ferries and flights ...

Michael Rutter blog: “I was looking forward to a good lap”

Michael Rutter, 05 June 2009 11:38

Everything was going fine last night. I’d done a 125.5mph lap and was looking forward to a really good lap but we hit a few problems – as you can and often do at the TT. We were down on speed early in the week so Dave Hagen re-mapped the engine management system for us. Wednesday night it was better ...

Rutter's Blog: "All the effort's been worthwhile just to ride down Bray Hill!"

Gary Pinchin, 03 June 2009 14:35

I can’t deny it. The first time I rode down Bray Hill on Monday night I had a real tingle down my neck with excitement.  It felt so good to be back at the TT, especially to be on a bike that wasn’t even built a week earlier. I found myself grinning for ear to ear as I was riding ...

Isle of Man TT blog: McGuinness nervous? Too right

Phil Wain, 02 June 2009 10:05

When the sun shines, there’s nowhere better to go racing than at the Isle of Man TT Races – and, boy, is the sun shining! The first timed practice session has just finished and whilst the Island is continuing to welcome a steady flow of visitors, expected to increase considerably as the week wears on, there’s a very relaxed mood ...

Michael Rutter blog: Two fifths but I should have done better

Michael Rutter, 01 June 2009 13:53

The Worx Suzuki I rode at Thruxton was brilliant. Two fifth places was okay but I just wish I could have done better. Everyone in the team was happy with the results but I should have exploited the traction control system more early in the races and pushed a little harder when the tyres were good. Once the initial grip ...

Rutter Blog: “The Worx Suzuki can be front row. But can I?”

Michael Rutter, 01 June 2009 11:03

I’ve had a great time at Thruxton today on the Wrox Suzuki. It’s different to what I’ve been used to riding but we were sixth in the first session and eight in the second and I’m confident there’s much more to come. We ran fourth for ages but stuck to the same hard-compound tyre so we could try lots of ...

Michael Rutter Blog: “Front row is just brilliant”

Michael Rutter, 31 May 2009 10:00

It’s been another amazing day. From the start of the meeting here at Thruxton I was running the settings that the team and Guintoli had been using and the bike has been bloody good. All I’ve done different is to put some weight on the back and the only other thing has been giving it a few clicks on the ...
