Busy year continues for Byrne

Busy year continues for Byrne

Shane Byrnes whirlwind year has continued over the summer, despite a three week break from racing. In the final round before the break at Donington Park, Byrne was unveiled as the face of the new MotoGP Top Trumps game, whilst the launch of his impressive new website has given him plenty to do over the holiday period. is packed with news, photos, videos and competitions and features regular diary updates from Byrne, who is understandably proud. The website is funny, good looking and very quick just like me! he joked. Ive got a fancy new laptop so Ill be updating it from my travels throughout the season.

Shakey is currently on holiday in Spain but is keeping the web updated every day and admits he is finding it hard to relax. It´s funny how I had to really force myself to just lay on the beach, says the British Superbike Champion. I like to be always doing something and whilst chilling on the beach is relaxing I can´t help but want to get up and do something.

Byrne is unlikely to be bored for the rest of the season after his deal with the cult card game Top Trumps, and he has opened up the challenge to the rest of the paddock to take him on. Top Trumps is a great game he said. Not only do kids still play it in their millions but guys my age all remember playing when we were young and are getting back in it thanks to cool new packs like this.

Weve got loads of spare time at events so Im issuing a challenge to the other riders to see who is the real MotoGP Top Trumps Champ!

If you think you have what it takes to beat Shakey at his own game, he will also be playing the MotoGP Top Trumps Live game at throughout the rest of the season.
