Yep more bad news, at this rate we will have no bike racing taking place till 2021.
I know it’s for all the right reasons, but it still doesn’t stop me missing the racing.
Roll on when some sort of normality returns & we are allowed out on bikes again.

Shame but I do think we will not have any racing this year, it would not be right to have just a small number of rounds for a championship, be it BSB, MotoGP etc.

Roll on next year hopefully they can get racing back.

I’m disappointed but understand their reasoning.

For me that’s two trips to the IOM this year thats been cancelled and I’m supposed to be going to the Pyrenees in September, can’t see that happening.

Roll on 2021

Is that the Moto Piston rally?
I’m booked up to go on that too, along with paul n.
I can’t see the Spanish wanting any Brits to arrive this year, but hopefully I could be wrong.

In my own mind, I've written off any and all sport in 2020. If anything does take place then I'll treat that as a Brucey Bonus.

Hi Colin, I knew you and Paul were going to the  Moto Piston as he contacted me a number of weeks ago enquiring what my plans were for this year. My trips to the Pyrenees and I think we may be on the same boat.
I followed the rally about 8 years ago for a few days whilst over in the Picos and it looks an excellent event/challenge.
We have met at the Classic TT a couple of years ago whilst at Gorse Lea.

I remember, yes we did meet at Gorse Lea, at the Classic TT in 2018.
Let’s hope our Spanish trips both happen, if not this year, then next year.
