This is Thunderbikes
This helmet cam video, taken by Paul Baleta riding a modified KTM Duke at Buxton, is what a midfield to back end runner sees in a UK short track race. You're trying to get past the guy in front knowing there's normally a queue of chancers behind. Watch Paul's bars shaking from side to side to see how he's having to ride it. Come and have a go (if you think you're hard enough).
Talking of Paul Baleta, he is one of the many fantastic characters attracted to the UK Thunderbike class. Already this year he raced in the Erzberg Rodeo, regularly in short track and this week he's racing two bikes at the Manx GP on the TT course. Legend! Visit his Speed Therapy blog. GI
