I got drunk with Roland Sands once. Not just a little bit tipsy, I mean properly fucked. We got chatting at a BMW festival in Austria and hit it off. One minute we were talking about the time he replaced an injured John McGuinness in the British 250cc championship, the next we were necking belt […]
