Japanese Speedway nutters

You better, you bet

Speedway is mad, no question.

Ice speedway is madder but Japanese speedway must be the maddest. The riders have to be quarantined during a race meeting to stop anyone 'fixing' them. Their handlebars are bent from new. And the millions of yen that are wagered on every race just adds to the whole surreal experience.

This Japanese TV programme captures a great bent handlebar-to- bent handlebar race. Personally I think this commentator should replace Jennie Gow on the BBC's coverage of MotoGP. Haven't got a clue what he's on about but he doesn't half know how to communicate his excitement...
