Gary Rothwell – Cinderella Man

Posted: August 28, 2015 at 4:09 pm   /   Blogs

Gary Rothwell is regarded as one of the founding fathers of the stunt-riding scene. Twenty years ago he was in his prime, performing all over the world. Ten years ago he had pretty much retired. Well, he’s back. In 2014, a Dutch plumber named Egbert did a 199mph wheelie, for a kilometre at the World […]

SuperBike talks to – Bob Parsons.

Posted: August 11, 2015 at 1:30 pm   /   Blogs

If Bob Parsons walked past you in the street, chances are you wouldn’t chuck him a second glance. An unassuming, smiling older guy, there’s little about him that gives away his passion for bikes, or the work he does for the motorcycle industry in Arizona and the rest of the USA. Growing up he scratched […]

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. Herlings gets hurled and Tonkov eats dirt.

Posted: May 19, 2015 at 9:09 am   /   Blogs

The MXGP of Germany was brutal. Pure and simple. Heading into his home round of the world championship Max Nagl (IceOne Husqvarna) led the 450cc class but the unforgiving Teutschenthal track claimed him in Saturday’s qualifier, a broken ankle the result of a collision with David Philippaerts (Yamaha). And MX2 leader Jeffrey Herlings (Red Bull […]

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 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 […]
