The worst part for me with this whole situation was that I had to contact Honda to advise I will not be able to go Qatar for them at the weekend for the new Fireblade launch... looking after the press with the legend Freddie Spencer.

With the weather wet and fairly mild in January, what better place to be... the Welsh mountains on my enduro bike for a couple of days with great mates...

Dabbled at Speedway years ago….. as a fifteen year old and always felt more natural on that machinery than road racing. Over the years been regular Flat-Track racing whenever possible including some instructing.

Invited down to Wales by an old workmate, when I say old workmate, together in bricklaying gang for ten years before I raced. Haven’t seen him for few years, now a successful developer locally and very keen on trail riding like myself.
