Our man Clinton Pienaar competed in this year’s Isle of Man TT races (seniors division) , arguably the most im-famous motorcycle race in the world. This is 4 laps of 64km each on the public roads of the Isle of Man.
Riders clocking close to 300kph in places have to contend with painted lines, road signs, trees, telephone poles, spectators and of course the legendary ancient stone walls alongside the roads.
The roads perfectly flat for 80kph become MX cross jumps at 250kph and riders battle to keep their front wheels on the ground.
Clinton – “The average time for my best lap was 183.7kph – not bad when the lap is 64km long! Eventually 180kph felt slow. I’m a family man and rode to fulfil a lifelong dream, not because I wanted to prove anything. I’m glad I’ve done it, I can be proud of my achievements and I’m glad to be home!”
The race has been dominated by Ian Hutchinson for the last few years and this year was no exception – this kind of madness is fortunately a rare thing!
Guy Martin a TT legend provided massive drama with his fiery crash.
