I’m one of those people who think there should be a special Olympics for steroid users… Why not see just how freakin’ awesome humans can be pumped up on the best drugs science can offer? Except for the part where it might kill the athletes, it’s a great idea! But why not do the same when it comes to motor racing? Why not use all the technology available to make the best and easiest to ride bikes and race them at insane speeds? Well…because… Because the fun of “real racing” is that every person on the field has pretty much the same machine, pretty much the same tires, pretty much the same chances of winning – and yet the rider with real skill will wind up twenty seconds ahead of the ones with less… That’s like magic: it’s giving us the opportunity to see what difference a rider can really make and advance riding technology. So what’ll it be? Would you rather watch real racing without electronics or the full blown steroid Olympics? I can see the benefits of both…what do you think?
