As dawn breaks tomorrow, the start of the 2012 practice sessions for the Isle of Man TT begin. The most dangerous and amazing race on the face of this Earth. With over 200+ deaths to date on this circuit, there is no room for error, and when you do make a mistake, things go bad very quickly.
I am one of many, wishing that they could be standing just metres from the road as high-power bikes race past at blazing speeds. The sounds penetrates the peaceful silence of the island, with birds chirping and the sound of the countryside all around you, the bikes power through the twists and turns of the circuit and compete for the win, or least of all, to finish in one piece.
It is definitely worth checking out ‘Closer to the Edge’ if you haven’t already! An amazing movie going into the lives of the TT riders, namely Guy Martin and taking you deep into the world of this amazing race.
