• A real downer for the Hunter Valley’s Sam Masters, who leaves for the UK on Friday in order to sort out his visa for the next season or two.
The problem has arisen due to his late call up to the Australian Grand Prix to replace the injured Jason Doyle in the Melbourne event.
Sam left the UK with a lot more haste than he had intended and had no time whatsoever to undertake the painstaking task of getting his visa renewed.
Clearly this situation is far from desirable, but it is absolutely critical it is sorted out correctly – happy travels Sam!
At this stage it is unknown if any other riders are in a similar predicament.

• On the subject of Sam, it has been a great week for him following a disappointing showing in the Australian Grand Prix (Compared to last year). He won open meetings over consecutive nights at Mildura and Gillman over successive nights against riders the caliber of Max Fricke, Justin Sedgmen, Jason Crump and Mikael Jepsen Jensen (To name a few) – very hard to do, especially twice.

• Some lovely images surfacing of Darcy Ward enjoying some time on the water with mates last weekend, courtesy of one of his Polish face book friends – really great to see the smile on his face and some great friends he has too.

• Talented Queenslander Tyson Nelson hasn’t ruled out doing some racing this summer – he would be a great domestic addition to this summer’s major events – he can ride this fella!

• Awesome to see the legendary Phil Crump looking well at the meeting held in his honour last weekend in Mildura. Phil remains an incredibly popular figure within the sport and his presence certainly added some magic to the night.
