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.
There are, of course, exceptions to this case: the occasional Valentino Rossi expletive, Guy Martin (who’s probably in MCN this week) and the majority of pure road racers. And shoving James Hillier in our bang bus for a McDonald’s Drive-thru session, which is why our somewhat loose approach has been positively accepted.
This is James Hillier. And these are the answers to some of your questions.
