Michael Dunlop 2017 Isle of Man TT Programme Cover

Ian Hutchinson 2017 Isle of Man TT Programme Cover

Personally I think the covers look excellent, however I am not so convinced on the actual concept.  I can only presume that the Isle of Man is feeding off the rivalry that sparked last year after the Senior Race when MD and Hutchy had a little tete a tete that wasn’t so private…

I believe that every rider that sets off from that start line deserves a cover, so personally I think a more generic photograph is more suited for the event and the sportsmanship associated with it, but I guess we have to accept (as can be seen across the Irish network) costs are rising and anything that brings in more revenue, to secure the future of each event has to be considered and acted upon – and what is better than a clash at the top?  So Hutchy and MD are the top two, the event knows it, and now the spectators are being forced into a Hutchy v MD show down.

Who will you choose?

Me, I’ll be choosing Bruce Anstey 🙂
