Breaking news: sunshine at the Isle of Man! Throughout the day, action was non-stop, beginning with the “big girls” dancing around the Mountain Course. Michael Dunlop broke his own lap record—130.895 mph!—and just like that, all was well in the world of real road racing.
Sidecars were next, with Tim Reeves and Dan Sayle taking the victory—and Sayle tying Rick Long’s record of eight wins as a passenger. As soon as the sidecar podium cleared, the lightweights took to the track. With clear views and dry pavement, the riders showed that these small bikes can really fly.
With more horsepower, there were more wheels in the air as the riders launched from the top of Barregarrow en route to the suspension-compressing left hander at the bottom. The day closed with TT Zero practice; the Mugen Shinden and MotoCzysz entries are without peer.
So, what does a weary, sleep-deprived photographer do on Saturday night? Simple: eat dinner and fall into my bed, hopefully in that order.
