It has been a long year in motorcycle racing. A rewarding, entertaining, surprising, and wonderful year, but with so much going on, it has been hard to keep up. So much so that we have been left exhausted at trying to cover it all, and depressed at how utterly we have failed to cover just a fraction of all the things which happened this year.
So it is time for a break. For the next two weeks, until the start of the New Year, we will be taking some time off to recover, to read, and to dream up new ideas. That does not mean there will be no content on the site - we still have a few ideas for articles which may go up between now and the New Year - but it will be sporadic and irregular.
We will be kicking off 2018 with our regular ranking the riders feature, along with another feature which we believe will be invaluable and entertaining for motorsports fans. And we will be considering a refresh of the website design, and a different structure to the way we work.
So Happy Holidays of various sorts to all those who celebrate them, and happy days to those who don't. Thanks a million for all of the support we have had throughout 2017, it has meant an awful lot, both personally and professionally. And we look forward to doing an even better job in 2018!
