I don't get it. I couldn't care less about the Olympics, or Wimbledon, or much of the World Cup for that matter. If ever there was a true representation for the word "meh" its those with me.

Sport rarely catches my attention, although for some reason this year's Luge event caught mine. Can't think why...

If you can get Eurosport, might I suggest you tune in to World Superbikes - which will certainly have you on the edge of your seat if the first two races of this year are anything to go by. There are seven, yes seven, British riders taking part. Smile

If you don't have Eurosports, Channel 4 are showing highlights... tomorrow I think.

The only good bits about motorsports are the crashes and accidents but people frown on you for saying that.

According to the Channel 4 listings, it is on at 01:15 on Tuesday (9th March), so set your video recorders chaps!!

I hope you have noticed, nelz, that I have carefully omitted to reveal the winners in case you have not seen the races yet. I'm not getting told off for that again. Razz

Hi slippery

That's why I specifically recommended watching World Superbikes, where there is actually some excitement (plenty of opportunity for weeing in pants! Very Happy), rather than MotoGP.

Also (for me anyway), it is much more interesting when there are British lads to cheer on.

Superbikes are 1000cc you idiot, and the 250 class is gone anyway.

I'm sure you could, and would, but would it be the correct result?

Marrea: Thanks for your restraint, I watched last night and it was worth the wait!
