Since the Senior TT Was Cancelled This Video of the Isle of Man Might Help Ease the Pain

The cancellation of the Isle of Man Senior TT marked the first time in history the races haven’t been run without the Senior TT class. Race organizers made the difficult decision not to run the marquee event as inclement weather conditions disrupted the schedule, and after the  race was postponed due to rain on Friday – and again on Saturday – a course inspection led to the stoppage on safety grounds.

The legendary John McGuinness retained the Joey Dunlop Trophy for the overall TT Championship as he collected 74 points overall, but he was ultimately disappointed when the premier event was shut down.

“No one wants to see a race cancelled, but I think the right decision was made. There was so much rainfall on Friday that the course was saturated and on some parts of the course it simply wasn’t drying up,” McGuinness said. “As riders, we want to put on a show for the thousands of fans that come to the TT – and I feel for them more so than anyone – but not knowing what lies round the corner on a 200 hp Superbike with slick tires is a very scary prospect. When conditions are perfect, there’s no better place in the world to race a motorbike, and we’ve seen some fantastic racing this weekend, so it’s a shame to end on a bit of a low note, but we’ll all be back next year to give it another go.”
