      Not a big follower of Moto GP but the news regarding Nicky Hayden sounds absolutely terrible. Thoughts with him and his family.

      Not a great week weather wise for practise but at else this evening the guys got out for some laps.

      Difficult to say who's going to take the first Superbike on Sunday but I wouldn't count Bruce Anstey out on the Padgetts.

      Michael might take that race to get the Suzuki sorted for him ready for the Senior.

      Hutchy won't be far away either and can't wait for the first race.

      Agree. Michael looks to have got to grips with the Suzuki very quickly. Dan Kneen worth a look for a surprise podium.

      William going well on the Supersport and would love to see him take his first TT win.

      All the best to Lee Johnston as well after his accident. Broken bones in back and coccyx by all accounts.

      I'm following the live times mate. Just seen Hutchy has taken the lead.

      Did he make up time in the pits?

      he did lap 3 at 124 average..his pit stop must have been quick as he's starting to break away now..

      He's an awesome rider.

      As much as I like him though would love to see Dean clinch this one.

      Can you believe a tree has come down on top of a car at Ballig bridge just after Ballacraine so that's delaying things further..
      Don't even want to think about what damage that would have done if it had've come down during a race !..

      Well I was wrong about the Superbike race but Dan got a podium just now on the Stock machine.

      Great stuff for the local lad.

      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..
