HASLAM IS A GOD (although I admit my spelling of his name is probably questionable)

He is BROKEN right now, UTTERLY BROKEN and he STILL WINS THE 8 HOUR!!!

He is harder than than the SAS, all of them, put together!

This era will be looked back upon as another GREAT TIME for British Riders… Not the loonies of Fogarty and Co. but the strength and qualities of the underdogs whose bite far exceeds expectations under unbelievably hard conditions… Crutchlow v the aliens… Sykes, Rea, Bradley Smith, Scott Redding, ole Shakey at home even… and the return of the legend that is Chris Walker… we are living in great times!
