    So basically i picked him in my fantasy legue as he is Scottish and I thought he was getting back on some form after the national champs. However i cannot find if he has a ride for the 2012 season. Last years team of Maxxis/Rocky Mountain seems to have been disbanded and i can not find his name in any of the time sheets for the first world cup race in SA.

    Last I heard was in January and he was without contract since Rocky Mountian ceased racing in October. Might have a ride now though.

    Hope he has a team lined up, I’m suprised he doesn’t have one already with last years results.

    Was told that he has had an op and on recovery time at the moment and the reason that team maxxis was disbanded was that they wanted to concentrate sponsorship for London 2012 as they will get more exposure for their money

    Incidentally, can anyone tell me phonetically how his name is pronounced? Always ended up calling him Rhubarb….

    English name Roy or Roderick becomes Ruairidh, Ruairi,or Ruaraidh in Gaellic (there are other technically incorrect spellings). This was soon anglasised to Rory for the hard of Gaellic.
