    Uh-hum (clearing my throat)....What nationality is the current Moto-GP points leader? (now that's an exciting motor sport) Can't ever recall a Kiwi Moto-GP rider, ever!

    MR slight ..was our best hope in the super bikes untill his brain tumor thingy, there are a few guys that have the ability to be at the top, but unforunately their daddies don't shit money.
    guys like Anstey and the injured Shaun Harris, have worked their way to the top just like all the other guys i have ridden with at clubs days.
    I think NZ has produced more top riders than oz (motorcross) , sure we are not in superbikes or GP but if half our riders had the backing you'd be saying "ozzy who??".

    Willy, I could do a list of current Kiwi acheivments on the world sporting stage BUT I Have to get my kids off to school soon, it would just take too much time but when I have a half day free I shall compile it for your enlightenment and edification.

    When you see this just think Kiwi.

    A good win, but a long way to go to catch the greatest ever TT rider Joey Dunlop who was from a little village down the road called Armoy. he was world champ 5 times also.
    Road racing is brilliant, unfortunate that it only happens in a few countries any more.
    I heard that Bruce Anstey only does 2 races a year, the Northwest 200 and the TT, anyone know if that is right?

    We may as well steel ourselves for the chorus of crowing if:-
    1- the Kiwi's win the America's Cup
    2- The All Blacks win the Rugby World Cup

    Both of which are distinct possibilities.
    So, in anticipation:

    Even in NZ joey is a legend,in fact he was guest of honour at a road race in christchurch many years ago...
    There are several road racing series in nz, and a very strong club racing scene.
    It is very likey Anstey only does 2 races a year , as he is probably funding himself, with a litle bit of help from sponsers and MCNZ.

    Bruce Anstey i beleive rides for a suzuki team from the uk..
    I read today that a top UK rider has been forced into early retirement due to the high cost of racing.
