Itís been a good few years for Spanish sport with Spaniards ranking every bit as well in the MotoGP as they have in the football. Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo have now been joined by Marc Marquez in making up the top three of the 2013 world standings. Only Rossi and Stoner previously seemed capable of breaking the Spanish monopoly, but Stoner is now retired and Rossi is possibly past his best.
The recent Mugello meet saw Lorenzo creep towards the top of the table by defeating his nearest rival, Pedrosa. Pedrosa has fallen strangely short of winning the title in the past, and it may come down to a test of nerve for a rider who may feel like fortune is against him. Many would say that the smart betting money is on Lorenzo to retain the title with generous odds of around 7/5 as oppos..... [read more]

My stunt that cost me $2500 US...
I'm a 16 year old stunt mountain bike rifer. I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I always dreamed of base jumping, so when the chance came, I got to it. Then I took lessons at a nearby wind tunnel school. After becoming almost perfect at it, I decided to combine by two hobbies. Without my parents' permission (they know now and are okay with it) I took my mountain bike and my parachute and drove to the nearby mountain (Mount Syemour). There I pedaled off a 500 foot cliff and after 3 seconds of staying on the bike, I pulled my chute open. It was beautiful. I taped the whole thing and a sent a copy to REALTV, so I'll post the brodcast time and day when they phone me. Anyway as I was on the ground packing my chute, I mounte (mountain police officer) raced to me and my video crew (my two best friends) and told us to kneel. I was hopefully not arrested, but fined $4000 Canadian ($2500 American)! That is a lot of ****ing money. But REALTV will give me $1000, and I had $500, So I still owe the government $1000 US more. NEXT TIME I'll MAKE SURE THE COAST IS CLEAR BEFORE WE DO ANYTHING LIKE THAT AGAIN. ..... [read more xsession files]
