I love the TT and have been watching it on TV and DVD for years. These types of incidents are the tragic parts of this race.
I was very sad to hear this news and my family sends condolences to friends and family.

This is becoming a major issue in general at the TT and I am not sure what the answer really is. I think 7 total last year including 3 or 4 spectators, tragic...

Someone I have known for a long time was paralyzed in a sidecar crash a few years ago.

What can be done to help this? I am not sure, I hope for everyone's safety at the Isle, competitors and spectators alike.

Best of luck, the weather has not been the best for practices. Mind the tyco boys and yourself.
Say hello to the Honda TT legends lads, nice Irish boys always good for the craig
