There’s something about drivers from relatively humble beginnings that means they never lose sight of the bigger picture, and I class Steve Soper as one of them. Open and honest, he never finds it too difficult to tell the truth.
I enjoyed seeing him in the Radbourne X1/9 – you knew he was good and would go places, much like former Anglia racer Roger Williamson.
I wasn’t aware of the reason Steve had stopped competing and I hope he’ll be able to enjoy his racing once again, albeit at a slightly slower pace.
Good on you, Steve.
I’m also one of the two-wheeled fans who admires the spectacular, elbow-on-the-tarmac style of Marc Márquez – great to watch and there’s never a dull race in MotoGP. However, when talking about the fans enjoying the riders treading into danger zones, MotoGP just doesn’t come close to the Isle of Man TT. Michael Dunlop and John McGuinness have totally different riding styles but are such fantastic talents. Show me a MotoGP rider who’s competed and won on the famous mountain circuit and that’s a rider who’d truly deserve our respect. Come on Marc, buck the trend!
