MICHAEL HONOURED TO RIDE BOB MCINTYRE GILERA TRIBUTE LAP
"It's one of the best experiences I've ever had. It was so strange to ride. I don't know if it was me or the fairings - it felt like the tyres were flat. It would have been great to run the bike in the Senior race. It was a real honour to ride the bike. We had a great reaction around the course. Everyone loved hearing the bike. What I did doesn't compare to riding the 8 laps. its much easier now. I spent the whole time trying to find 6th gear - I didn't realise there were only five.”
Unfortunately multiple breakdowns seen early retirement for Michael in all three races.
