I did a great article on Geoff on RRA last spring. With exception of the editor not catching my typo on the Daytona finish (and me getting yelled at from Jordan's PR people). Geoff will be fielding the National Guard Suzuki for Jordan this season. He's a stand up guy and hard worker. Can't wait to read the article.

Default why is this subject worthy of effort?

surely you've heard of RoadRacingWorld? They've done this exact subject several times over. as have the likes of CycleWorld. Seriously, what on earth do you expect to write about that could even be remotely construed as original?

Because possibly Jeremiah hasn't read any of those articles, and won't be just regurgitating something he read from someone else?

Because things change over time, and the experiences of a "newbie racer" today isn't going to be exactly like that of even five years ago?

Because the fact that, even though it's been "done before" doesn't mean he didn't think of this independantly, or that he won't do a good or better job than previous authors?

If you don't like it, don't read it. It costs you the same, either way. You get precisely what you're paying-for.

As a guy who's heart always yearned to do this but whose brain never quite realized it, this is gonna be great! Too bad you waited until I was "old" to write it.

You forgot to mention that Cycle World articles are worthless.

Yeah, they remind me of those two old geaser's that sat up in the balcony on the muppet show, *****ing about everything and everyone.

I think this article, although it has been done before will be quite interesting, the result's will always be different. Different Rider, support, and bike, will yeild much different result's. Who know's maybe even a podium visit? I'am looking forward to the set up discussion's, and exposing the dirty rider's,...cause you'd be surprised!
