      Made
      Crazy week of high's and low's so far..
      Watched Saturday's Superbike race at a really fast section of the course up around Ballaugh Bridge and they we're frightening.

      No racing today, open roads are mad, bikes everywhere.

      another day of racing and lap records broken tomorrow i'm sure..

      Made up to see Dean Harrison on the podium yesterday, made it to 2nd after MD was disqualified from runner up for having an illegal engine!!



      Made up for Dean as well mate.

      I said to my missus that I fancied him on the Supersports and I wasn't far wrong.

      Micky Dunlop cleaned up again today around the mountain course..
      Ace weather all day too
      Some sh*t currently going on with the Kawasaki bikes, apparently all four have been disqualified from this afternoons race which means that Harrison and Hillier are off the podium.. nuts!
      Watched the Newcomers A class this evening and they were very quick.. maybe not as quick as the works bikes of the TT but still fast.
      One to watch out for the future is Micheal Evans, winner of the A class..

      Dunlop is such a good racer though, it's in his DNA..

      NW 200 this weekend coming and would have been fantastic if it was last weekend as the weather here is glorious.

      Guy Martin is back at the triangle but Alistair Seeley will again be hard to beat along with the other usual suspects in Michael Dunlop and Hutchy.

      Possibly making it up to the North Coast this weekend so fingers crossed.

      Yeah, weather perfect over here too mate..bit windy but very sunny and clear.
      Not long now for this years TT..
      The highway board have been out painting the kerb sides,tying the safety bales around the 37 odd mile course and they've been
      re laying a good few miles of the mountain section so I expect a few lap records to be once again smashed this year.
      Good to see Guy Martin back, he's nuts !

      Have a good one if you're heading north this weekend.

      Yep it's good to have Guy back as he's a real character.

      Doesn't care much for the NW course though especially the newer chicanes but he uses it as prep for the TT so maybe he feels he has a chance for his first win this year on the Honda.

      Didn't make it to the coast today but just watched a fantastic final race in the NW200.

      Glenn Irwin leading from the start and doing everything he could to hold off Seeley to take the win.

      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.
