Well, i've got to start by saying it's actually been spookily quiet round here for most of the week. Big Mike, Jonesy and Ed have been away at EuroBike in Germany, hob-nobbing with the movers and shakers of the biking industry, anyway i do hope they remember to bring me back some Bratwurst.

The Dirt Team, old and new had a razz on the 1.04 test track at the start of the week with Ralph Jones and Rob Breakwell flying the flag for the new team. While World Champion Nigel Page and old dog Steve Jones made up the old timers. We took some helmet camera footage which shows a riders perspective of the track, i'll put that up as soon as i've worked out how to play it properly, does any one know about 'codecs' ?!

Jonesy was pushing hard and over cooked it on a corner resulting in a bloody nose and a completely dazed look

Also down at HQ was Allen Millyard and his son Stephen together with a very special top secret bike, it's early days yet but this bike has a lot of revolutionary aspects, watch this space for more updates
