September 23, 2019

Congratulations to Briar Bauman for sewing up the 2019 title with one race to go. We interviewed him before the start of the season for Sideburn 36. When I asked, 'I have $1000 to bet on the 2019 AFT championship. Should I put it o...

So, the schedule caught up with me and I couldn't follow every race live. I missed the SacMile, but watched the Peoria TT after racing myself the same day, so I was just observing, not making notes. Briar was on it at Peoria, and t...

Less than 40 hours since the Buffalo Chip podium the AFT riders were back in action at the Black Hills Half-Mile, another race that is part of Sturgis Bike Week. 

After the one-line TT of the Buffalo Chip, which I'm indifferent to,...

This is getting daft. Sunday's race was delayed nearly two hours because of rain, so the first singles practice started at 11pm UK time. I saw the new schedule, watched singles Qualifying 1 (Q1), then set my alarm for 1am and slept...

We have produced a neat 24-page beginner's guide to flat track in conjunction with Indian Motorcycle. Indian ordered a limited edition of 1000 issues to be printed, and gave them out at the MCN Festival and the Bike Shed Show. If y...

The 2016 champion was missing from the So Cal Half-Mile on Saturday, the second race he, or his team, have decided to sit out this season. Giving the Super TT a swerve was somewhat understandable if they were struggling, and they s...

Continuing reactive reports and thoughts the day or so after AFT races, here is the latest. Because this was a west coast night race I only caught the first few laps of practice and the Singles and Twins mains. Here goes...

I'm going to keep splurging these top of the head reports if I watch the AFT races on Fanschoice. I had to get up early for a flight on Sunday morning, so I set my alarm for 3.30am to watch a bit before I left, then streamed it on...
