If you didn't want to hear the commentary, couldn't you hit "mute"?
siffert_fan, engine sounds and it is better than complete silence.
Friday November 1st ITV1 10:35pm to 12:40am TT: Closer to the Edge
A documentary following the 2010 IoM TT races and the riders, one of the riders featured is Guy Martin who is always worth watching and listening to.
Bill Boddy .
The title rings a bell but I' can't remember seeing it. Saw something call "Close to the Edge" which was good. I hope this one is not the usual IT4 presenter-itis job with Parrish and that other bloke filling the screen in between 10 second "blipvert" shots and tedious slow-mo's.
I missed most of the TT this year because I just couldn't tolerate their hatchet job coverage. The most irritating things was their insistence on trying to commentate on the races as if they were short track sprints. TT races are more of a narrative and, IMHO, best related as a story. After all, in reality each lap is like a mystery tale, with the true positions of the competitors only known when most of them have crossed the start/finish line and sped off down Bray Hill again.
Two hours worth so hopefully it's a good one ...
But just in case you do find a site showing live racing the schedule is here.
141 riders have been killed since the first TT in 1907. Isn't it about time something was done about this? If this was an F1 event it would have been scrapped years ago until something was done about safety. The 141st rider killed was this week.
Surely enough is enough?
Dunlop almost being taken out by Hutchy at 100mph. Both very lucky.
Michael told Yamaha their bike is shit after this run and went back to BMW.
Watch how quickly Hutchy disappears after he passes Michael.
But I do think it would be an idea to keep noobs off the superbikes for say 3 years to at least give them a chance to learn the 2000 corners on slower bikes.
Titch if the riders and organisers thought like that then there would be no TT next year, they all know and accept that they may get killed doing it, that is what makes them so special.
Stop being such a girl about it..
Mephistopheles I am a girl, well OK a woman.
