    Isle of Man sidecar race tonight was really good. I never used to follow the sidecar racing or pay interest in it, but the coverage on ITV4 was really good and a good race to watch. On a negative note one of the TT riders had a very serious accident. The modern bikes which can average 130 mph (so reaching 200 mph at times ) on a normal road 37 mile circuit with lamposts, walls, curbs, houses and trees to crash into is extremely dangerous.

    Hi Bikers,

    Well another disaster for the Doc , a stupid arrogant mistake by the young reckless one and sheer brilliance shown by the winner riding perfection. And to say Cal did good would be a understatement , all in all a great race, but doubt the Italians had the same views ?. Danny no doubt sighed a lot thinking how lucky he is to have a really considerate teammate ,I think Honda may be having words ,very deep meaning full ones with the youngster having lost a podium place for nothing gained .
    All I need is a miracle

    Hi Pete,

    yes Marquez crashed on every outing on this circuit, his earlier high speed crash probably didn't help, he was very lucky he wasn't seriously hurt. I think it's his relative inexperience. Cal was brilliant. I think it was Bautista's fault taking out Rossi, the Rossi fans will probably give him a hard time now. Carol

    Rossi having tough time hope he doesn't quit, would be very bad news for Moto GP. Cal seems to of matured a great ride from
    a guy with painful injuries,young Bradley Smith another very brave race too.be interesting to see if Scott Reading gets a factory ride
    In motor GP 1. Next year
