Tell me you couldn't have any fun on this
Jump onboard with John McGuinness as he heads from the start line on his Shinden Ni / Mugen electric motorcycle in the TT Zero race.

Not a place you want it to go wrong
What's Bray Hill on a Superbike on the opening lap? 150, 160mph?
When you look at this picture, the packed viewing areas and what's left of the bike, well, it's a minor miracle no-one died when Jonathan Howarth crashed on the opening lap of his year's Senior TT.

This picture is of Michael Dunlop during the Supersport race heading through The Bungalow.
That black line has come from his front tyre and as one former Isle of Man racer said: 'You don't lose the front through The Bungalow unless you're pushing hard.'
McGuinness described one of Dunlop's laps after following him ... Continue reading
He's Mr Consistent
This is Jorge Lorenzo's lap chart from Mugello. It's a work of art!
That consistency is something mere mortals like me dream of.

Surely these riders are weird, because ... Continue reading

The last corner clash. A racing move? A step too far? A taste of what's to come?
