right, some Road Racing news:
- Michael Dunlop is thinking on missing the 2014 season because of not getting a good enough deal. This is major news, and a shame if it happens. I’m surprised Honda wasn’t “good enough” for him. i really hope he sorts himself out and rides next year.
- Conor Cummons joins John MacGuiness at the Honda factory team. Again, major news! what a chance for Conor! i’m sure he’s going to do well there. i hope he finally gets a win at the TT. Good to see McPint race for another year at least. Top bloke.
- William Dunlop joins the Tyco Suzuki team. Finally here’s a chance for William show what he’s capable of on a good machine. The Suzukis are not as fast as the Hondas, but still quite good. He joins Guy Martin at Tyco.
- Ian Hutchinson is back, and already has made an impression by winning the Macau GP after a long time recovering from a very nasty crash at Silverstone in 2010. Good to see him back. He’s riding for the Milwaukee Yamaha team. Also riding for the Yamaha team in 2014 will be Josh Brooks, the fastest rookie around the TT course.
next season is shaping up to be a classic. there are several riders that can make the TT a very enjoyable one… and i’m going to be there to see it!!!
in the last few months i’ve been watching other races on the road racing calendar, and now can say i’m properly hooked on this. i’d like to go to Ireland and have a look at their National Road races. Places like Armoy, Cookstown, Kells and Tandragee. I’m already planning to go to the Northwest 200 and the Ulster GP in the future, possibly 2015. I want to go to this year’s Golden Cup, up in Scarborough as well.
