Project 2015: The Finale
Actually, although the project has ended, 2015 has only just begun. After an epic first round of British Superbikes at Donington to whet the racing appetite, the BSB circus rolls into Brands Hatch for round two next weekend, which also means the first instalment of the 2015 Ducati TriOptions...

Casey Stoner to race Suzuka 8hr
We don’t really do race news but this is a gargantuan newsflash: Casey Stoner will make his racing comeback for Honda at the Suzuki 8hr in July. Love him or loath him, having (arguably) the world’s fastest man on two wheels competing again is blockbuster stuff for motorcycling –... Read more
MV Agusta F4 RC
Holy fuckeroni. This new MV Agusta F4 RC is stunning: a pure racing homologation special with little regard for road etiquette, allowing MV Agusta to compete in World Superbikes with a rolling melange of exotic materials to showcase technology. Sadly, only 250 RCs will make production. And it’ll cost... Read more
Bruce Anstey and the Yamaha YZR500
Bruce Anstey doesn’t look like the fastest man ever to lap the Isle of Man TT. The Kiwi currently resembles more of a Seasick Steve wannabe than your stereotypical racer, beard wildly out of control, yet the laidback Anstey doesn’t mess about for a 45-year-old. 44Teeth caught up with... Read more
2015 Isle of Man TT Press Launch
In just 72 days, the first riders will be tearing down Glencrutchery Road for the start of the 2015 Isle of Man TT. 44Teeth were present over on Mona’s Isle for this year’s press launch of the world’s most iconic motorsport event and after chatting to all the stars,... Read more
Project 2015: Part Three
Whoa, whoa, whoa: the sudden realisation that there is less than a month until we start racing has suddenly dawned, suddenly. The first round of the 2015 Ducati TriOptions Cup joins the British Superbike circus at Brands Hatch on the 17th-19th April and I’m beginning to applaud the decision... Read more
James Hillier: “riding the TT with dodgy brakes is quite scary”
The vast majority of TT racers are all well-liked, approachable characters and lack that rockstar mentality of some of the, erm, rockstars, and James Hillier is one of the most down to earth, straight-talking riders in any paddock. We do love a good natter with him… The Ringwood rider... Read more
Teenage Kicks: KTM RC390 Cup
I guess the weekend diet of White Lightning, Lambert & Butlers and mild recreational narcotics seemed fun as a teenager, but I’d give my right nut (the smaller one) to turn back time and have a go at racing one of these. Ladies and gents, say hello to the... Read more
Photo Spesh: Repsol Honda MotoGP
Can anyone beat Marc Marquez in 2015? Probably not. Only six weeks until the season-opener in Qatar, and we’ll get to see these beauties under the floodlights of Losail. Note the analogue dash on Pedrosa’s bike – Marquez uses a digi, which is probably why he’s faster… Pics: Repsol... Read more
How to eat a Honda
Bank Holiday weekend, 2013. What better way to spend such a festive time than with loved ones, family and friends, racing round and round in circles polluting the beautiful Welsh countryside, eating a Honda Fireblade and visiting Bangor A&E. They say a picture paints a thousand words, but this one... Read more
Project 2015: Part Two
It’s that time of year again. That time of year when I’m bordering on morbid obesity after a Christmas of indulgence, the leathers don’t fit, exercise is futile and fucking Mini Eggs are teasing me in every shop I enter. The good news is, it’s only a few months... Read more
Photo of the Week: Eddie Lawson
When men were men, when anti-wheelie was a mere thought in the minds of exceptionally clever men, when American men were good at racing GP bikes. Amen. Men. If you didn’t know, this is Eddie Lawson in 1992 giving it big licks on his infamous Cagiva C593. We’re unsure on the... Read more
