Sticky Post : New Site Section : Motorcycling…

Like motorcycling?  You are in for a treat!

If you take a quick look up to the top of the site you will see some separate sub sections such as ‘About’, ‘Events’ and so on…

Look a little closer and you will see the latest one – ‘Motorcycling’ 

As this is such a big section of the site and let’s be honest there are some epic biking posts contained in here I decided it needed its own dedicated section.  That means the site will stay dynamic with newest posts going to the main page which won’t therefore get filled with ‘Sticky’ Posts so the new stuff keeps appearing but the epic bike stuff remains ridiculously easy to find too… WIN WIN!

Now what are you waiting for, go on click it… ‘Motorcycling.’

 

Official Statement from Guy Martin…

Official statement from #GuyMartin:
Plenty of folk have been asking what I’m up to this year.

I fancy a change of scenery. I’ve been racing the TT for 11 years. All I’ve really done since I was 18, except the trucks, is race motorbikes and my brain needs something else. 

Every year’s the same: testing, racing, then start again. It brought it home to me when I was lying in hospital after the Ulster Grand Prix crash. 

I’ve been on about the Tour Divide, the toughest pushbike race in the world, for three years and I thought I’ll blink and next thing I’ll be 45, so I’m going to do it this year. I like breaking myself mentally and the Tour Divide will be tough, but it’s same time at TT, so that’s forced me to make a choice.

I’m not done with motorbikes. I’m attempting the Wall of Death record in the spring and having a go at the land speed record in the summer and if I do race on the roads it will be with TAS.

After the Tour Divide I might never want to see a pushbike again – or never want to go road racing again, I don’t know. But I do know Bruce Anstey and John McGuinness are still racing the TT, and they’ve got a few years on me, so maybe I’ll come back next year. Or maybe I’ll find something else interesting to do. 

I’ve got more interests than just motorbikes and I just think let’s bloody have ‘em.

Thanks very much as ever for the support. 

Guy.

Unfortunately to me that reads as a ‘farewell.’ Hopefully it is more of a ‘see you later’ than a ‘good bye.’
