North West 200

The 2016 North West 200 starts on Tuesday, anyone else looking forward to the first international road race of the year? Anyone going? How do you see the races going?

An interesting shake up this year with Hutchy joined by Ryan Farquhar at Tyco BMW, MD is on a Buildbase bike, Cameron Donald joined forces with his old boss Wilson Craig, William Dunlop is on a CD Racing Yamaha R6 and an MSS Colchester Kawasaki, the vastly improving Peter Hickman has switched from BMW to Kawasaki however it's as you were for McGuinness, Cummins, Anstey and Hillier who all remain with their long time teams. Should be a cracking meeting.

Me too, it's a break from the usual bullshit you get in other series, none of that "tyres built to suit so and so" because they can use whatever tyre they want, they race road bikes which anyone can buy and convert to racers which is why you see epic battles for race wins and on top of that they all shake hands at the end of it.

Seeley goes very well round there, I think he will be hard to beat. Although MD looks very up for it!!

Yeah Seeley is generally the man around there. Rutter broke the Superstock lap record.
