How to shave time off at a new track.

Posted: May 26, 2015 at 4:47 pm   /   Blogs

This is not a riding guide as such, this is a tyre review. If you’re expecting to learn how to shave time off at a track you’ve never ridden, read on, but do so knowing that you might have to spend some money on new tyres along the way. Also, Michelin haven’t paid for this […]

The Dirt Doctor will see you now. Mighty Max, Febvre and Tomac.

The British MXGP was the nuts! After years of disappointment you get used to the hype turning to shite but this time around the racing was fan-frikkin-tastic, we had Brits banging bars at the front and the atmosphere was almost on a par with the glory days of Foxhill… Both Shaun Simpson (Hitachi Revo KTM […]

Are takeaway delivery riders planning to steal your bike?

Posted: May 13, 2015 at 12:58 pm   /   Blogs

It seems like the perfect cover story, takeaway delivery riders slip between the cracks of your vision. Like cab drivers and cyclists, there are so many of them that eventually you just stop seeing them. What better way to scout for bikes to steal than by using a takeaway delivery as an excuse for crawling around […]

The Doctor will see you now – Spain, Villopoto’s tailbone and the Britpack

Posted: May 7, 2015 at 12:38 pm   /   Blogs

Spain! Birthplace of Picasso, home of El Bulli, a country of arid plains, snow-capped mountains and sun-drenched beaches. But balls to all that cultured stuff – it’s also where you’ll find Talavera! I’m not talking about Sean Bean poncing about with a big sword in Sharpe’s Eagle (remember that, before he starred as Boromir alongside […]

The General Election – A biker’s guide.

Posted: April 30, 2015 at 4:45 pm   /   Blogs

With less than a week to go until the UK’s General Election, Superbike has taken a quick and dirty look at what the main parties have to say about biking so you don’t have to. The things we do for you eh? Bit of housekeeping first. Bikers rarely vote on biking policies alone, so parties […]

The Dirt Doctor will see you now. Crashing, Dungey and Toni Bou

Posted: April 30, 2015 at 11:18 am   /   Blogs

Crashing sucks. Anyone who rides hard will tell you that. It hurts. It can be expensive. It can fudge up your championship. Over the last couple of weeks we’ve seen a number of world class riders go soil-sampling – most notably MXGP rivals Ryan Villopoto and Antonio Cairoli. Yep, that’s right, both Ryan the Lion […]

The Dirt Doctor will see you now – Michelin MX nationals and booze!

Posted: April 14, 2015 at 10:17 pm   /   Blogs

The Dirt Doc’s not a God-fearing man (although I’d like to think I’ve given the odd lady a religious experience or two) but I’m starting to wonder if there’s maybe something in it. Cooper Webb thanked the “big man upstairs” when he sewed up the AMA 250SX West title in Houston on Saturday night and […]

The Dirt Doctor will see you now – The weekend preview

After GPs in Qatar and Thailand that were so Mickey Mouse they could have been sponsored by Disney – followed by a surprisingly solid event in Argentina – the world motocross championship finally lands in Europe this weekend. The big news for British fans is that Red Bull KTM’s Tommy Searle will be back in […]

The Dirt Doctor will see you now – Anstie, Jimmy Nail and an RM250

Posted: April 8, 2015 at 9:33 pm   /   Blogs

Okay, so you’ll find Lyng on the map just beyond the point marked ‘there be dragons’ but there’s nothing medieval about the awesome Cadders Hill circuit – apart, that is, from the amount of torture it hands out. Super-smooth for morning qualification at Sunday’s second round of the Maxxis British Motocross Championship, by the time […]

The Dirt Doctor will see you now – Sterry, turnips and the sulky Belgian

Posted: April 3, 2015 at 12:02 pm   /   Blogs

Merry Easter my little roost rabbits! Before I give you the dirt on this weekend’s Easter action let’s have a quick rewind to see what went down in South America last Sunday… Argentina is the spiritual home of corned beef, military blokes in big hats and, as surprising as it sounds, pretty good motocross tracks.
