If the motorcycle industry is to survive it needs to encourage the next generation of riders and one of the most inspiring sights is 10-year-old Kayla Yaakov beating adult riders on the track.

It's fantastic to see a young person achieving such a lot- dozens of big trophies at her age!
I'm currently reading "The Fast Stuff" (excerpts to come soon).  It's a very tough business- good on her if she can break in.  Many of the big names (Rossi etc) were racing from when they could sit on a bike.
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
