<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (Tom @ Jun 2 2008, 07:38 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}><div class='quotemain'>Tuxworth overseas the whole lot and i believe the parts and kit will be fundamentally the same but it will be built and setup by a different group, some minor parts will be manufactured in house so will probably differ.

I know this deviates from the topic, but does this mean Ellison runs the same spec bike as HM plant in BSB? Or is this TT specific?

Mystery to me, i know that last year Bikeanimal were getting factory equipment and support supperior to that of the Stobart team and even Ten Kate, so approximately HM plant level. This year however we know HRC have reduced their support of the HM plant team, but i would speculate that the teams remain roughly equal in specification. I'll see who i can ask next time i'm in the BSB paddock, but it looks like that wont be till september!!

+1 Anyone who gets banned from BSB for slamming a laptop on Higg's fingers is O.K. in my (mac)book!

This sport needs more characters like Guy!!!

BTW did anyone see Milky Quail on BBC News 24, or it may have been Sky. Obviously they couldn't wait to show the crash, but the feature revolved around the consultancy he now gives to new riders around the course. I must admit, you'd preferentialy opt for a briefing off McGuiness if you could afford it, but at least Rich is Manx through and through! good luck to him!

Did you see him on that TT segment on Sky News? He really loves his racing.
