    Hangin in the pits with Brandon Cretu. Inspired to do the TT after breaking his neck. Several years now. One cool dude under pressure. Does Macau. You know why all these guys are cool, chill dudes? The hot heads DIE! At this game. Mere mortals need not apply. Dan Hagerty and his mechanic just had drinks with us. Nothing ruffles these guys. Check him out on the Norton and the Honda super sport. . I think there are only two Americans. Maybe three?

    Superbike was perfect conditions absolutely wonderful race Michael Dunlop pulled it out, he blew the competition away. Cameron Donald the Aussie came in second with an amazing showing. John McGuinness slipped to fourth at one point because of the 60 sec. Pit Ln. penalty. But he came clawing back to third place to knock Guy Martin off the podium.

    Coverage on Velocity looks pretty good, with Whitham & Plater doing the races.

    I think heir coverage will be a day behind, as the race tonight was the sidecars.

    I think the quality has gone up massively since Steve Plater has stepped up while Parrish has gone off to do the MotoGP for the BBC.

    Yep, Velocity (via Cox cable locally MG) has their coverage trailing by one day. :freaky

    Wow, what a TT week so far for Michael Dunlop! He won the Superbike race on Sunday, and yesterday he doubled, winning both the Supersport (600cc) and Superstock (1000cc) races.

    Joey and Robert must be proud!

    Loved the John McGuinniss "Joey" tribute ride!
    His minute penalty didn't help his chance of a win too much but still incredibly managed a third in the Superbike race, and appropriately...a new lap record! :thumb

    Little disapointed in the number of finishers in the TT Zero. I was hoping for more than one Mugen and one MotoCzysz.

    Michael is on a hell of a roll. He's in the lightweight, so he stands to win 6 races over the week. That would be "MEGA". :rofl Poor Guy Martin. I don't think he's destin to win a TT.

    Michael Dunlop dropped out of the lightweight, so no 6 wins for him. He's been less than charitable about his feelings on the new lightweight. He basically hates it with a passion. So he's completely focused on winning the Senior now.
