Tuesday 28th (Practice session 2) Still on cloud nine after tonight’s practice, it’s always a huge shock to the system jumping onto the big superbikes but tonight I really enjoyed lapping the mountain course. I quickly felt at home on both bikes and only riding at 50% of what iknow I’m capable off I was still only 2.5mph off my personal best! Which in difficult conditions I was extremely happy with.. It’s still very early but I really do feel great on the bike and I’m sitting with a huge smile on my face! I just love the Isle of Man TT!! Roll on tomorrow night, hopefully the weathers kind to us.

The race was stopped after the accident with Peter Hickman declared the winner, the result decided by positions after the second lap.
The TT races around the island off the north-west coast of England have been run since 1907 and rank among the most dangerous in motorsport. Two riders died last year.
