We watched the latest video block blog from Aussie jockey Chris Symons getting fit for his comeback to racing and a few things crossed my mind:

1) This is a superb piece of edutainment for casual racers and armchair racing critics as riding to win in a real race and traffic coming at you from all directions and you in the driver’s seat of a thousand pound beast is not a game of cowboys and injuns. It requires being a great athlete.

2) It introduces us to The Birdman and, potentially, racing’s only caped crusader and a super hero to take on Iron Man- but without all the armour.

3) It makes my old mate Michael Rodd sound like Batman’s scholarly father and the Golan of racing.

4) All that pushing and pumping shown by Chris Symons is a new way for losers- and even studly dudleys to get laid. Women will get hot and heavy and weak in the knees watching all that pumping action.

Chrisso, leave a few for those who are only capable of pumping the air. Ta, mate. See you back in the winner’s circle and where you belong.
