Dan Kneen had the save of the century at this year's Senior IoM TT. The incredible footage shows the local rider getting completely sideways and being thrown off the side of the bike. Somehow he managed to stay on and finish in 12th place. Scary and amazing at the same time, well done Mr Kneen.

Even though I know he saves it I still flinch every time I see it

Ouch - clean underpants required. That was epic but I bet he would not want to repeat it. Cracking recovery and huge respect.

Simply unbelievable. Any normal human being would have been seriously injured or killed.  The guy is amazing; that takes some talent and skill to save such a situation.  Big respect to the boy. Easily the biggest potential disaster that didn't happen that I have seen in 30 years of motorcycling.  Genius.

And he kept going? I think I'd have to pull over for fag and a bit of a think after that one. I think the camera op thought he was coming for him - self preservation instinct?
