James Hillier Breaks Strava

Yesterday, it emerged that the rumour was in fact true: James Hillier does need a wheelbarrow to transport his unfeasibly large testicles around with him. Not only is the Ringwood nipper having a bloody good 2015 Isle of Man TT, he got to spank the 326nhp Kawasaki Ninja H2R round The Mountain Course during a ‘parade’ lap. According to the… Read more →

Ten Minutes With…John McGuinness

He’s not quite the proverbial housewives’ pin-up favourite but there isn’t a bad word spoken about John McGuinness. Morecambe’s finest lines-up with Honda for a millionth successive year and is fighting fit ahead of the season – in the run-up to last year’s TT, McGuinness badly damaged his wrist after twatting a rock in an off-road crash and 2014’s results… Read more →

Whatever bike he’s on, you can bet a bollock on Michael Dunlop being a favourite. The younger and more outgoing of the Dunlop brothers lines up at this year’s Isle of Man TT races aboard a Milwaukee Yamaha R1 in the big races, hoping to emulate last year’s success on unproven machinery. Many armchair pundits will tell you that pure… Read more →

Bruce Anstey and the Yamaha YZR500

Bruce Anstey doesn’t look like the fastest man ever to lap the Isle of Man TT. The Kiwi currently resembles more of a Seasick Steve wannabe than your stereotypical racer, beard wildly out of control, yet the laidback Anstey doesn’t mess about for a 45-year-old. 44Teeth caught up with the 2014 F1 Classic TT winner at last week’s TT press… Read more →

2015 Isle of Man TT Press Launch

In just 72 days, the first riders will be tearing down Glencrutchery Road for the start of the 2015 Isle of Man TT. 44Teeth were present over on Mona’s Isle for this year’s press launch of the world’s most iconic motorsport event and after chatting to all the stars, we’ll be drip-feeding TT-related content in the coming weeks.
