Here's an on bike video of the CRMC MT125 race last weekend at Pembrey. This is a great race and shows tight club racing at its best. I really enjoyed it and all you stroker and MT125 series nuts will love it.

Hi RC,

I can vouch for that 'cos I was there watching! Great stuff indeed and I was surprised at their speed, despite a heavy crosswind (and some heavy riders :lol: ). For out and out fun on a motorcycle, it would take some beating :up: !

Nice find Russel. Didn't know that Mike spoke fairly decent french . Funny how he answers on two occasions that he's too lazy to do a "proper" job and that is why he keeps racing ( at the ripe age of 26....) despite having won them all and lost quite a few friends .

Ah, thanks, Philippe, I was thinking of asking you to translate. Yes, that self deprecating thing that the Brits like to do. French GP: Redman all knees (wonder why); Provini almost on the tank through the corners - lovely to watch.

Was he recalling his time with Triumph at Meriden as some kind of dogsbody, which was certainly another blow after his Pangbourne period?

Good stuff, Renn. Might have been closer if Minter's motor was pulling properly; think Graham Walker said Bob Mac was overgeared too. All those lovely Manxes....  ;)

Thanks, Philippe. Or if that doesn't work, it's on YouTube. I think it's been up before, or perhaps I saw it on YouTube. A strangely downbeat film or what? :
