Seeing the premier class of motor cycle racing move from 500cc and into MotoGP was a huge step change, but Toby’s enthusiasm for the new era of racing in 2002 saw his voice forever linked with the great races of Valentino Rossi, Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez. Travelling to each race was key to total integration into how to live-eat-sleep-breath a sport to purvey its excitement and verve leading to Toby being one of the most respected journalists in the paddock with a resulting bulging international contacts list.
