    I've been watching this event closely long before I ever decided to buy a bike. The skill, courage, stupidity, or combination of, is beyond my level of understanding. I also find it interesting that the older guys normally seem to have a slight edge over the kids. Very unique event held at an equally unique part of the world.

    Yesterday was the last day with.......

    John McGuinness took his 20th Isle of Man TT race victory on Friday when he won the Pokerstars Senior race by ten seconds from team-mate Michael Dunlop, to make it a record 41 podiums in total. Bruce Anstey took third place, and set the fastest lap of the race at 131.531mph, as he got the better of Lightweight TT race winner James Hillier by 0.978s on the final run down the Mountain.
