On a hot and sunny day, here's a #TBT to a hot and sunny day in 2011, at the WEC in Spain, and this is Juha Salminen on his screaming Husky TE250, on his way to his 13th and last world crown. Such a class act. Image: JB
9th Jul 2019
Got to love this old Suzuki PE400 we saw recently in Kent. Note the cool way the brake and sprocket stay on the swingarm while the wheel/tyre are worked on (that's real enduro tech). Those are Fox Airshox too (cool). Young William Hughes here rode this PE to victory in the classic class recently at the 2019 Welsh Two Day so it's a well used classic (we'll not speak of the loose spokes!). Cracking bike. Image: JB

TBT – to 2016: Break a leg: In theatrical terms that means good luck. Do the same in the backwaters of Madagascar and it's not so much fun, as Omar Mansour Alfardy found out. Nothing like the attentions of a German film cameraman, an American presenter and the residents of a small village to make you feel conspicuous. Good drugs kept the pain at bay – until the witch doctor came by, and a nest full of ants. For real. Adventure, eh?
