Although I prefer Formula One, I am totally in awe of the riders who take part in perhaps the most dangerous motorsport event, the annually held Isle of Man TT. A quick trawl through some stats reveals that the best riders cover the 37 mile public road circuit at an average speed of over 130 mph! The on-board media clip below perhaps best illustrates the challenge that the riders face to negotiate & survive the mountain course to post a competitive time. As the clip plays, just note the closeness of buildings, walls, lampposts etc. as the rider flashes past!
