    Random Association

    Part way through it I found myself thinking of old Ramblers.

    Spain invests more in teams and in riders. Britain likes the TT better, so it's difficult for a Brit to get into MotoGP. Rea used super sticky qualifying tires. That is all.

    I chuckled at his mentioning Sam Lowes' comment on something as being "stupid". Well that would settle the matter, right?

    Well being as its wrirtten from a British perspective by a Brit it pretty much makes sense to me.........but obviously if you're from elsewhere its of no interest......way of the World I guess, the globe gets smaller in terms of technology, communication, travel etc but most folks are still only interested in what goes on in their own back yard.

    Simple, the Brits aren't jockey sized.

    It is relevant to most countries other than Spain because unless their motorcycle racing organisations get their act together Spain will dominate MotoGP for decades.

    Clever!

    I just noticed that Sam's #22 reads the same even when upside down! Was that purely fortuitous or by intent? In either case it worked out rather well.

    Sweeping with presumption. Well done!

    You might find some Americans on two wheels in our flat track series who could roost SLowes pretty fair-ish. And the lad might benefit from this dirt experience, because all that time in the gravel has availed him nought.
