Brave man

Steve Hazell races this modified street bike Sportster 1200 on Britain's piddling little speedway tracks. Line up next to him in a heat and all you can hear is the bike bouncing off the limiter on every straight. It took me about a year to build up courage to try pass him (I'm no natural racer, in case you hadn't guessed). God knows how fast he'd be on a proper race bike.
He'll probably be racing at Peterborough. He goes well there. Last year he crashed into the boards, bent his forks and still came back the next day.
