North West 200 2013

Ok so the first practices started today for this years NW 200. The first of the races are on Thursday with the main days races on Saturday.
As usual I'll be there! for both!!.
Here are the results of todays practices with local road racing sensation Michael Dunlop dominating!
As I said at the 'Tandragee 100' a couple of weeks ago..he is a sight to behold! and in my opinion THE most exciting road racer I've witnessed ..in years!

Too right!!..all being well I'll be there tomorrow and get a look at Gary's bike in the paddock.
Hope he goes well out on track.
What about Josh Brookes racing at the NW200!!? Great stuff.

Pity Alastair Seeley had bad luck in the first practice as he is awesome round here!.
I tip Michael Dunlop though to do the business (him or Seeley). http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/northern-ireland/22534584
We just need the weather!! Cause I've got the tickets for me and the missus

What happened to Martin? Did he have some sort of mechanical to not complete the practice?

Don't know..I can't really see him figuring though. For sure if he's in the race to completion he'll be top five..., but there are so many other guys out there that he won't 'have the beating of' (in My Opinion). http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/northern-ireland/22538108

But we'll see soon enough (tomorrow and Saturday). Then in a couple more weeks the TT and I predict the same.

Here's an onboard shot with Alastair Seeley who will be at or near the front...make no mistake about it!

Cool Brian, Have fun. I have been watching the old races on youtube, in the middle of the 2011 NW200 now, great stuff, those guys going balls out on that course locks me to the screen man!

Here is an onboard practice lap with Guy Martin... for those unfamiliar with the weight you need between the legs

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Awesome. Good luck to Guy.

Michael is on fire this season though.
