  • 2013 IOM TT – who's going and who do you think will win this year?
  • If he manages not to break down I think you might well be right.

    Not overly fussed who does actually win, I love watching it regardless. Would be nice for Guy to finally get one though.

    Have to agree with Shepard, would love to see GM winning one.

    I’m there with a group of 12 from the 31st May to the 4th June. Weather permitting will see Superbikes and Supersports. 😀

    Will be rooting for GM…it’s got to happen for him soon.

    Was there last year and wishing I was going this year 🙁 I agree that Michael Dunlop looks a good bet this year. Would be great to see Guy win one but I don’t think he will.

    Well the count down has started in our house til we fly over. Flying out first thing saturday morning so will be there for the superbikes, then a few more days before we fly back. Really looking forward to it again, just hope its nice and sunny!

    As for what will happen, i’d love to see Guy win one of the races this year. Maybe not the superbikes but one of them. I think it would do him and the rest of the racing the world of good. Kind of calm him down a bit, but still leave him wanting the superbike win.

    I think the man this year will be Michael Dunlop. Bigger team will help him out and just get the feeling that he’ll rule it this year.

    Time will tell, but the clock is ticking….

    I agree that Guy Martin ought to finally win one but I get the feeling he will be the bridesmaid again.
    John McGuiness is almost a given but the thought of Josh Brooks riding there scares me. I hope he is sensible and treats the place with due respect in his first year.

    About time Guy Martin won one.Josh Brookes was downright dangerous in BSB so lets hope he is respectful of the drystone wall run offs on the TT course

    Josh Brookes has come a long way since his reckless years in BSB- he’ll be allright 😉

    It’s going to be Michael Dunlop V’s Guy Martin- but never ever discount John McGuiness……

    Oh yes- looking forward to the return of Norton!

    Would love a Norton victory 😀

    My money is on McGuinness, he’s just so precise and seems to carry a bit more speed than the others through the tighter corners like Ballacraine.

    Can’t wait for it to start though, not long now….

    Only 4 days, 19 hours and 22 minutes 8)

    Whilst I end up working a lot of extra hours during TT, I am out and about so get to see the bikes and chat to all the fans.

    The Isle Of Man is already a fantastic place to live, but the atmosphere during the TT makes it even more special.

    It’s nice when everyone goes home though!!!!! 😆

    McGuinness will do the Senior again, Dunlop to bag a couple and Guy to get a couple of podiums but no wins.
    I honestly can’t see GM winning a TT now, I hope I’m wrong but I can’t see it happening.

    Brookes will be interesting the year, he’ll either do well or put it through a wall somewhere.

    I’ve got the Manx Radio app on the iPhone so I’ll be listening to the racing at work!

    I’m pretty sure I read in Performance Bikes a few months ago that Martin wanted to win a TT so he didn’t have to come back.

    Not 100% on that though.

    PSA…

    ITV4 @ 9pm TT 2013 Conor Cummins – Local Hero

    A profile of the motorcyclist, who is chasing his first ever victory in his home event, the Isle of Man TT, having previously finished on the podium on three occasions.

    Still amazed he survived this..

    Not going this year but will be cheering on Bruce Anstey as usual. 🙂
    Man’s a hero – doesn’t say much, which makes me like him all the more.

    Here is a link to some webcams on the course.

    Weather wasn’t nice this morning, but it cleared up enough for a practice this evening.

    Weather isn’t looking amazing over the next few days, but maybe not too bad.

    The doc on Conner is worth watching not a lot of action, but bloody hell well done for coming back from that.

    So sad for Matsushita, he only got his place in the race confirmed today 🙁

    Really terrible news.

    Deepest sympathy to his family, friends and the rest of the Tyco team.

    No practising tonight here either, low cloud and wet all the way round so clerk of the course called it at about half six. Forecast a bit better for rest of week, really sad about last night’s tragedy

    McGuiness vs Dunlop for the top step for me.

    I’m a big fan of McGuiness – so smooth where others are ragged. But Dunlop has some raw talent. If he can put it all together he can run McGuiness close on the big bike IMO.

    Hope the weathers good, everyone gets round safely and I would love Guy Martin to finally get the victory that he deserves.

    Michael Dunlop just ahead of McGuiness though this year I reckon based purely his new aerodynamic shape 😉

    Unplugged everything, left 10 mins and plugged back in? Done a software update?

    Excellent result for MD.
    Can`t wait to go over for Senior race on Friday.

    Yep, he really seems to have matured this year.
    I’m happy he’s cracked it on the big bikes, but gutted for Guy Martin.

    Bruce has manflu – 😀 The Kiwi version of Hislop, sadly. Unless everything is perfect, he’s not really there.
    Ah well – here’s hoping for the Senior.

    Amazing last lap from JM, but the first time he’s been beaten in a straight fight on the Island in ten years.
    Wonder if the DJ anniversary is getting to him? They were very good mates.
    Can’t help thinking what might have been if DJ was still here – the lap record would e a few mph higher, that’s for sure.

    No spoilers ’till after the highlights tonight, but today’s Supersports race sounds like a bit of a classic.

    Any news on Branko Srdanov btw?
    Last I heard was he’d been transferred to a hospital on the mainland.
    Hope he’s ok, he was amazing at Macau.

    Yep. Shame about that 60 second penalty. Hummmm

    I will hold judgement on that I think till the senior race

    Oh forgot to mention. But don’t know if anyone else picked up on the comment from M Dunlop yesterday.

    “It’s good to beat John before he retires”

    Could it be that McGuinness is set to retire this year from the TT or sport ?

    No spoilers ’till after the highlights tonight

    Edit: My comments on todays results removed but needless to say 😀 for some and 😥 for others

    Latest on Branko Srdanov was Serious but Stable according to TT forum, but the lack of information is slightly worrying 🙁

    Yep, done all that stuff

    We had a guy in on Saturday cleaning the gutters, I was in the house – TV’s working, I go out, pay him, shut the side gate behind him, go back in the house, telly’s gubbed. I reckon he might have cracked the dish with his ladders. As both boxes are not getting a signal, it points the to dish or the LNB – hopefully fixed tomorrow

    110 mph on an electric bike today 😀

    and possibly the first 132 mph lap expected in Fridays senior.
