Its Billy's Last day at Dirt, lets wish him farewell!

Its Billy's Last day at Dirt, lets wish him farewell!

Billy Trailstar or Billy the Web, or many of the other things that Billy been called over the years. He’s been the main fingers behind Dirt’s website for a long old while but is now moving on to pastures new. Today is his last day at the digital contols, I’ll be doing an ‘obituary’ on him in the coming weeks but for now… for anyone who has ever enjoyed a friday random, some of his leftfield questions or his boundary pushing video techniques… let him know how much he will be missed.

In his natural self effacing style Billy said “Hmmm, not sure if I warrant a web piece. I’m just a cut and paster with anxiety issues!” I for one have much enjoyed your cutting and pasting for a long time Billio… you’re gonna be much missed.

  22. where we going now..?

    its gonna take a monster of a geezer to fill Sir William`s inter`tweb boots..

    Thanks for the laughs bro…! Adios and good luck..

  23. Steve 'the butcher'

    Billy (along with grumpy) are the real reason I swapped from bikes with engines to bikes that required pedal power.
    Our bill is truly one of the most amicable people you will ever meet and has a writing style (and sense of humour) that has no equal.
    I hope your new venture goes well and I truly wish you every success.
    Thanks for the laughs.

  24. Shazza

    Babs, you taught me everything I know – how to grease the pipes, rod the back end and even rub a weazel. If it wasn’t for you I don’t know where I’d be. Probably still at old Geraldine’s place grinding myself into the floor.

    You’re one in a million and I wish you all the best.



  25. Pauline

    I’ve been a fan right from your Down and Out days Billy. Great loss to Dirt, it just won’t be the same without your humour and constant pun bombs. Not to mention all the great work that you have done for this sport. I wish you all the best in your new adventure x

  26. Turman

    All the best, Billy! Been rad sharing the ‘net space with you. Make ol’ Jonesy buy you a drink for us. Cheers.

    Billy, thanks for tirelessly bringing Dirt readers great viseo and web content for a long long time. I liked your style right back to the living in the car period. Pastures greener? What’s next for Billy?
    We’ll miss you mate. Those are some serious boots to fill.
