2018 Isle of Man TT Results

After 2 weeks of glorious sunshine on the Isle of Man – coupled with lap records falling across all classes, almost daily, the stage was set for an epic PokerStars Senior TT.

Michael Dunlop was almost late for the start, in typical Michael Dunlop style – so nothing to worry about there.  Dean Harrison started off with the same pace he has shown all week – warp speed!  Peter Hickman decided warp speed was the gear for him too and the stage was set for an awesome battle between these two.

Conor Cummings was the first man on the road and he pushed hard throughout coming out the other side with a 3rd place finish and an amazing result for the #padgettsarmy

James Hillier suffered a catastrophic incident on the first lap which resulted in his bike dumping it’s oil all over the course.  Michael Rutter was the first rider through the incident, followed by Michael Dunlop.  Neither rider really seemed to recover from it nor the four laps of waved yellow flag that resulted.

Ian Hutchinson’s Crash in the Isle of Man TT 2017 Senior Race

16 time TT winner Ian Hutchinson unfortunately crashed out of the 2017 Pokerstars Senior TT at 27th Milestone of the Mountain Course on Friday 9th June 2017 and in doing so fractured his left femur.

Michael Dunlop went on to win a shortened PokerStars Senior TT race with the Bennetts Suzuki rider taking his 15th TT victory by 13.3s from Peter Hickman and Dean Harrison.

The restarted race was run over four laps after the original race was red flagged on the second lap due to the incident above. involving 16-time TT winner Ian Hutchinson at the 27th Milestone.

The Tyco BMW rider suffered a fractured femur and I wish him a speedy recovery and a speedy return to the TT.

Just today Hutchy tweeted a photograph of his front tyre (captured by @manxathlete) – it seems explain an awful lot…
