How hard do they ride?
In 2011, racer Dave Hewson broke down at Greeba Castle, and spent the session watching. “Dan Stewart came through. The track drops away there and his Blade spun up and wouldn’t settle for 100 metres. It wasn’t slapping, just wobbling. But it did it hard enough to snap two cable ties and despatch his transponder across the track. I went to see Dan later to return it, which he was quite pleased about. ‘Looked like a bit of a wobble,’ I said. ‘Oh, it wasn’t that bad,’ he replied.”
