New MCN May 22: Brit Blitz!

1 of 12

In this week’s MCN, out May 22, we celebrate the British Blitz at Le Mans, as Cal takes 2nd and Scott Redding wins his first Moto2.

We also have our free 32-page TT Preview supplement ahead of Saturday’s first practice.

Also this week: We ride Norton’s new TT racer, and have world first tests of the new mad, bad £20k Bimota and Ducati’s new Hypermotard.

In sport: All the analysis and insight from Le mans motoGP, and from the rain-struck North West 200.
