BBC - Jennie Gow: Perky Pedrosa lights up Silverstone

"Riders for Health, which aims to provide reliable transport to aid workers in Africa, hosts a charity day called Day of Champions, raising thousands of pounds by auctioning all sorts of rider merchandise and memorabilia.

Our very own Steve Parrish and Matt Roberts took to the stage several times to entertain the crowd. Then in the afternoon it was time for the real money-making to begin with Valentino Rossi paintings and Dani Pedrosa's boots just some of the items going under the hammer.

It was just before he took to the stage that I met up with Pedrosa, who won at Mugello last time out. Now, I have to be honest with you, Pedrosa has a reputation of being a little sullen and has always shied away from the media. He does not have the natural charisma that someone like Valentino Rossi or Jorge Lorenzo has. Nevertheless, he is undoubtedly one of the best riders in the world, preferring to do his talking on the track."

Hello family and friends,

First, my apologies to those who’ve been asking for the usual, daily updates I’ve been writing throughout the past few TT fortnights—rest assured this year’s TT was again packed with enough intrigue, highs, lows, and deception that its narrative seems more fitted to an action-packed mystery novel than a motorcycle racing meet.

If you like, here’s the complete story, all in one go:

Strange things transpired in the weeks leading up to this year’s TT, beginning with my would-be Superbike team getting robbed.

Silly Season: Stoner to HRC for €5 Million? Casey Stoner Ducati MotoGP 560x373
As silly season continues, rumors continue to persist that Casey Stoner has signed a deal with HRC. It was first reported by Italian news station Sportmediaset, and given it’s appropriate grain of salt, but now the German-language publication Speedweek is announcing the deal as well, and even claiming a contract price of €5 million to see the former World Champion ride a Honda in 2011.
