Qatar MotoGP 2008. It’s Casey, and the sunshine’s banned!

Posted: March 21, 2015 at 12:29 pm   /   Blogs

The endless highway snaking out of sight, a red sun setting on the promise of new thrills, a dusty roadside bar surrounded by ticking bikes, cooling muscle cars, cigarette smoke and the clink of ice cold beer bottles. It’s a world of endless possibilities, the classic road trip; for 100 years the stuff of petrol-head […]

The Dirt Doctor will see you now – Weekend wrap on Hilton Park round of Maxxis British MX Championships

Posted: March 15, 2015 at 9:35 pm   /   Blogs

I’ve invented a new game to eat up the motorway miles. Next time you’re driving down the M6/M5/M4 etc keep an eye out for the most desolate, wind-blown god-forsaken shithole you can find.
