The Isle of Man TT is an insane motorcycle race held every year on a tiny island in the Irish Sea. It concluded last week. Last year, the record for the average speed was set at 131+mph. Average. On city streets and backroad country lanes. With spectators literally an arm’s length away.
“In its 104 years, 234 riders have died. In the week I was there, seven people lost their lives. Three riders and four members of the public.”
