Not a good day for the road racing community over here on the Island these last couple of days during this years TT festival.
As srslfc mentioned in the RIP thread a dark day today..
I don't want to get embroiled in a debate over whether the TT should be banned but it is a worry when these, untimely deaths, create bad publicity of the 37.5m mountain course across the various media outlets.
Personally, I have lived here for 35 years and I can say that I have watched the TT pretty much every year since..
I think it's an amazing clash of man, machine, skill and endurance, one which, I still can't get my head around when I see them flying past me at 170mph..
Questions will no doubt be asked after today but so long as the riders want to take part year after year the Islander's will welcome them and the fans with open arms..
As crazy as it sounds right now.. two more full days of racing still to come..and the Island is buzzing with around 30,000 bikers enjoying the place and what it has to offer..
