Isle of Man TT Discussion

I've heard conversation coming out of animal pens that is more intelligent than what is going on in here.

Yesterday's RST Superbike TT could NOT have been a more far-fetched story, even if it was a movie script! Michael Dunlop, bouyed by his Supersport win on Saturday which put him even with Uncle Joey for most wins at 26, was champing at the bit and created a 25 second lead by the second pitstop only to have it all slip out of his hands because of an ill-fitted helmet visor. He had to stop less than a mile from pit exit and take his gloves and helmet off in order to fix the visor, refit the helmet and gloves and continue, finally finishing in fourth friends. Peter Hickman inherited the lead while Dean Harrison and Davy Todd rounded out the podium.

Here's Michael's unplanned stop...

Good to see Michael is in fine form, I must say. Was at the NW200 this year and he was way off Irwin and Todd, two completely different races but was thoroughly disappointed he wasn’t closer during the NW200, Surely win 27 comes at some point this week, anything else exciting happening? haven’t got to sit down and watch a race yet.

Nice! Lucky devil. Top of my bucket list is a roadracing vacation over there. Davey Todd capitalized on Dunlop breaking down and Hickman safely crashing out of the shortened, 4 lap Senior TT with Harrison and Brookes rounding out the podium. I'm pretty sure this is the first fatality-free TT since 1982.
