Watch: James Hillier’s Massive Moment

We all know James Hillier brags unfeasibly large testicles. Those gonads were seriously bashed around during part one of last week’s Pokerstars Senior TT after a moment of all moments on the exit of Ballagarey – one of the scariest corners on the Mountain Course. The Ringwood Ringpiece had a decent 2017 TT and claimed fourth in the riders’ standings,… Read more →

Video: James Hillier’s 2016 Kawasaki ZX-10R Superbike

As you probably would have gathered by now, we spent some time with James Hillier – the third fastest man ever to lap the Isle of Man TT course – down at his team base of Bournemouth Kawasaki in, erm, Bournemouth.

Video: James Hillier + McDonald’s Q&A

I think you’ll join us in a mutual loathing of racers’ media actions. In a world that’s become hideously sanitised, delicately teetering on the fulcrum of appeasing sponsors and keeping it real has meant predictable quotes and TV appearances, and the upper echelons of the sport bring a more amplified case.

We headed down to Bournemouth Kawasaki to inspect James Hillier’s fleet of TT racers, and a closer look at his ZX-6R Supersport steed… Obviously, the… Read more →

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 →

James Hillier: “riding the TT with dodgy brakes is quite scary”

The vast majority of TT racers are all well-liked, approachable characters and lack that rockstar mentality of some of the, erm, rockstars, and James Hillier is one of the most down to earth, straight-talking riders in any paddock. We do love a good natter with him… The Ringwood rider didn’t have the TT that he and others expected him to… Read more →
