Yea I agree, and he won't have sam to follow around this next year so its all on him! Also if they do decide to keep Mitch, thats a lot of pressure on him too. Usually teams try to focus their talent around 2 guys; 1 top 5 contender (troy) and 1 top ... more »

I've never heard of him before since I'm not from the UK but teams have sometimes taken unknown youths who have potential like Troy Brosnan but I assume he would have to be pretty tight with the Atherton clan to be considered for a paid riding spot... ... more »
