Practice got cancelled tonight due to lack of Marshals/Cornerworkers, only the newcomers got their speed control lap in

Lack of bandwith on this end so am uploading to my Facebook page until I can get more bandwidth

I can only imagine how much bigger Alan's balls got this year riding there

Some of those corners where your brain is going "NO!" and the throttle hand is saying "YES!" is amazing.

At one point late in the video you can see/hear him get a bit flustered after blowing a corner and getting close to the wall. I would have parked it and walked home

Just watched it all the way through. That looks like Waterworks. What's impressive is that he recovers, then picks off two bikes going up the hill, including one that's a 748 or 916! Going uphill!

Is that an SV he's riding? It looks like he's out there with classic bikes and 400's, and he's carrying some real speed in places, including what sounded like top gear through Ballagarey (AKA, Ballascary). Respect.

Yes, he's riding an SV in supertwins class. I think that class starts with the lightweights class (which he rode last year)

What's amazing is that he is 2 minutes off 1st place. 2 minutes in 38 miles?! That's just a few slower bikes in front of you and a few brake markers difference right there.

Oh yeah, it's in reach. There's just so much to remember though. Hard to put together a perfect lap.
