The third series of the Road Racing News podcast begins with your's truly and Steve's views on what would be our ultimate pure road racing team, from years gone by and modern times.

There's also of course the bamboozoler quiz question and in general keeping positive vibes going!

Everyone will welcome back to the road racing years podcast and then see you're are editor of road racing us to cur at UK and, as always, enjoying by me, Dad Steve Rowt. Hi, everybody, well thought for this week's podcast. That there Chris Steve on what he considers his ultimate road racing team. Now we lost recently. On Social Media I've asked races, fans, etc. Lots of great opinions and I thought you'd be something just a bit fun to us us your opinion. So you've been bolding the spot for over forty years. Really as a fan, as actual and FAMA photographer, I don't know both its top for Soccerfe you lead. I try and take a few pictures for your Steve in that's at up professed to be professor. No, no, what you use an some good shots? Yeah, a try, but but against the top lands and they're like Oh yeah, yeah, you know, I respectant alley as regards modern day seam manager. There's a lot of good top manages out there, but scenes are from your chaff. We call go for Claud padget clad patchet. Know, so to all class are racism. I'm run about the roads here. Yeah, so then clad clap runs a takeship, but a fair ship, and none of the all the all the top riders have nothing but praise for him. So that that means a lot. And mechanic. Well, there's lots of mechanics, but one mechanic that stands out pretty much for me. It's Paul Thompson, Tomoreus is not uneasy, a nice person, but is exceptional at his job and he does, you know, just B SB as well as on the road. No disrespect to all of mcadley's Goatsak at or what they do. Oh I've got the high streek actorum. Yeah, has regard for Raders well, for on the roads. The internationals were talking about yere at the present...

...moment in Sim if I could have free you have free right? Okay, well, I think I have in this is today and today. Yeah, they'd have to be Peter and Michael and and Dean, Dean Irison. Yeah, that'll be something to that be a fantastic to don't get me wrong. There's there's make a good, good top road. Risk is there? Yet? Then three the present moment in terntill stand out quite a bit for me. No disrespect. So any of the other riders, or were there the role brilliant riders? As regards saved from the S and the S and Nan's and NANCE's? Well, that's fairty years. I mean which which decade you want to go then? and S, S, s and eight as well. It's got to be, Joey. Oh yeah, no, it was. But there's a lot of good rad as does those, those a lot more adders doing the doing the big, big, big roads means. Then then there is now, let me think, they think, sadly, some of our even movies anymore. Yeah, fortunate million, the S and the eight S. Steve is lat saves. Well, yeah, yeah, fine, I guess Philip mccallan film, mccaw on year. I mean don't there's a lot of adders that he could pull there. I mean Joey, with no disrespect to all diveral races, was a league apart, like a bit like, yeah, what not? Bit like Mike Kill Wood was the same money and it was just before John's Tam really ill, the seventy eight Y...

...and yet and yeah, yeah, and then John came into his tow into his own Danny. So I've got it's in them, in them specific decades really also got to mention it all before. John, use us, David Jefferies, will David Jeffers. Yeah, well, that they go again. You say that there's you know, there's there's this, quite this, quite a lot, really, hmm. But that's that. Yeah, I could really if I could, if they the term and they wrote every single thing down and you took one point from another point from another point. But as Mattam and a very busy person in the same as yourself. Yeah, so I haven't got the haven't got the Tam to do all that. But that's off the top of the eight. is another one. Feeling if you could have one side car team which was running the Syco with the driver and the passenger, but from Modern Day Basil. It bare chills in the in the in the twenty first two tens away, twenty ten. Yeah, but but if it was still far, wasn't it? That to be molly and probably down sale and Dane Sale, but also good dis same is old to Nick Crow should mentioned. Well, yeah, well, Nick, Nick, Nick Crows. NANCE's one Ay and I was so two thousands. Yeah, but it's it was. It was into the nuances. When I was a started racing. It was it so to thousands, because he's still the fastest one round all his mountain age. Yes, so he's twelve years. So so yeah, yeah, Nick Crow, you know. But going back to the S S, specially the s, the s was the La for me on the roads. I suppose any was like Dick Graefley, and yeah, it was Dickreasely, of it would be not a bit jock sailer in the Johnson and mean there was up. There was really, really good. And also we had the way goes, though. Yeah, there was to stop set..., Steve Webster, it did to take a one. Yeah, and is it one star? One, though, one about the regular? Yeah, but there was so many the so anywhere. That's sucks. So add pick any else. So yeah, I mean for me it's hard to see. You to be objective, but I think if I was poshed, I think one of the outs. Yeah, have to be joyed it. This would be from years gone by and I'm saying now. Yeah, it has to be Joey, and I think is a simply because he also easy on his day. was was M vable. Well, he did did this ad is still did the pairfect lap prom coming some paradel. They too vous until we are small, faster than bouncing a Rosses onsto mob Duk. Yeah, they say it was the pair fet lap. I Don'ink for Modern Times. Yeah, it's got to be a key. I've been kicking my cold day. You, you can't argue. I think it's a result in it is. Yeah, I mean on the big on the big bakes. Yeah, if he sat going into the Middleware by will William done not for me would be definitely any bringing William Dunlop in. Then you bring in Lee Johnson in at there's there's so many that are that are in that ballpark. Ay, and even then he sheolts his greatest address of modern time. Jamescuton as well on the six hundred. Yeah, yeah, jams jims would have gone a long way. It did go along, we did it did. I've got that wrong there. Yeah, but this it's just what happens in road racing and it you know, it's just one of the downsides of producing really, but anywhere will go. It's a bit positive. But yeah, I guess worry. We would be an interesting up for you. Have enjoyed our opinions there and it's stout too to the news that the spring cups been moved to the twenty two, to the twenty five and May. Yeah, so that's...

...something a few ways. It's only two weeks, or so we thought, because obviously so weeks, ten working days because of recent government bringing down deep stages of lockdown, down back for so when we get into that, to that one, we're ether in sort of free and then that means to can have a crowd of four thousand. So fingers cross. Fingers Cross for that, providing it don't go up again or whatever. But and people are getting back stated and Minimam get vaccinated next sat day. So that's good. What was going to say. So I'm really really looking forward to it. That the the organ as is all the new the new owners of it is Andy and Wendy here's they deserve to have some massive crowds. Great. It's just like every book crowds and need to get for mets in and we he snay some decent weather and everybody turns open as a right good crack a and I think everybody deserves it, all the spectators, the teams, to Raders, everybody. So you go. So we're I'm really looking forward to it. I've already started ticking the days off. I've got all the dates maps out on the calendar. If you haven't got a calendart, get your Oliver's Mount Calendar. So we've got what wasn't we've got it mated up. So everybody will be wearing to go all the mass als.

So sorry for all the Irish road rage, but all of our wish road ris fans...

...because of the Gold Cup last year. I felt when I was watched, I was thinking, I felt that it real guilty. But I felt so sorry for him in now because I thought I've been waiting all year too. Well, it's it's political with the organizes and stuff. A lot of it we should that's that's my point of vehicle. But but for the Irish rice funds, I mean, let's face it, it is the best place of pure rods in it it's cell phone off, whichever the case may be. But if our Moi goes, I mean that would be really good. They'll be really very good, great meetings it. You know, I don't want to be losing these means. Yeah, right. Well, the bamboos were question last week.
