You should be ashamed of yourselves! You claim to be the UK's top motorcycling paper yet you cannot even update important news such as the Nakagami situation, what a joke!!! even more so as it affects a new to the series, UK rider's overall position in Sam Lowes!!! ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
