Welcome to the beta version of the new Women & Golf website. Our web monkeys are still hard at work and welcome your feedback.  



www.bikesportnews.com is launching a rider media training course. And it's free.
Right, that's got your attention. You're a rider, you don't get any press attention. Why? We have the answers. The Riders' Media Course wil be a one or two-day seminar, depending on demand, outlining skills such as how to write press releases, getting coverage in local newspapers, what to do when someone from the media comes to talk to you, not sticking your finger up in front of the camera when Andrew Pitt falls off, that sort of thing.
The seminar will be hosted by me, David Miller, Editor, www.bikesportnews.com. And why am I an expert at this? Ok. Here's why: I am trained and qualified newspaper journalist. I spent 15 years working at MCN Sport, Bike, RiDE, Performance Bikes, What Bike? and shit. 
Guest speakers:
Sir Robin Miller
Miller is a former editor of MCN, chairman and chief executive of Emap, Channel 4, Mecom, The Racing Post and is a bona-fide media mogul.
David Rowell
Rowell is a a born and bred newspaper editor. Of the worst Kelvin McKenzie sort. He trained me, and Richard Littlejohn. What Rowell doesn't know about selling newspapers isn't worth knowing. He will shout at you and call call you a cunt. It's worth it...

Dave is the unsung hero of British racing. He is the mastermind behind ThundersportGB, and he ran both MotoGP and WSB at Donington Park this year. And still has his hair.

Higgs is BSB's race director and has a harder job than you would ever believe. His take on dealing with the media will make you take notice.

He needs no introduction.
