I’m not claiming to be the instigator of this idea, but I did tidy it up and add the details.
Since the Olympics are now over, I am proposing the Motorcycle Olympics as a viable (and much more entertaining) alternative.
The World MotOlympics.
Would include a World Championship round (or a stand-alone event, doesn’t matter) of the following motorcycle disciplines.
World Endurance Road Racing.
World ROAD Racing (on public streets)
Trials, both outdoor and indoor
Ice Racing (perhaps better kept for the Winter MotOlympics)
Where appropriate, sidecar events of these as well
PLUS, where appropriate, Junior versions of these classes.
All of these events would take place, as the Olympics do, in one city, or metropolitan area and would be organised in such a way as to allow spectators to take in all of their favourite events without having clashes. Now if that isn’t the recipe for the best 2 weeks of sporting exhilaration, I don’t know what is.
