Spike bloody Edwards!

Have a watch of Spike and the background to some great TZ350 racing on Youtube, "Full event video from ICGP 2017 Paul Ricard Team Beale Roberts TZ350".   :)

He is at it again!  What a great bloke.  Don't ask him about bad starts though!   :o  ::)

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity"

Spike has been racing for years now and is quick on anything he races, be it 2 or 4 stroke, modern or classic. He uploads a lot of races on you tube. Really interesting stuff.

Don't think so, there is lots of stuff on him racing till end of last year, Euro ICGP Champion I think.   Twitter shows him having an off on 24Mar.  Also shows some more of him testing recently.  Interesting shot of his Team Beale Roberts TZ350 motor on bench.  Think it will be basically a G motor but, certainly looks like it is running something like a 5mm base spacer which, I guess means that is a long-rod motor.  Could make sense, the longer rod is supposed to help engine life at high rpm.
Hope Spike does well again!  :)
