Haven't managed to catch much of it this year yet, but see the program on ITV4 earlier today.

Hosted by Steve Parrish and Jim Whitham.

They went up the mountain on Mad Sunday.

Whitham was pulling wheelies everywhere, and owning everyone, on a Hornet. Top bloke.

As much as I like John McGuinness - if Cameron Donald had taken part and Bruce Ansty had not broken down the result would have been much different.

Still a podium for Guy Martin is a result.

Well some of my friends were there running the uni's TTXGP team and all I know is that ITV's coverage of the TTX was pretty lame! No mention of them at all

The ITV coverage of the TTX was no longer than two minutes and pretty shoddy IMO

The senior race did look pretty cool though - never watched the TT before but have watched most of this week's coverage, it looks absolutely mental.

Guy Martin cracked me up being interviewed on ITV4, in a barn with a few old bike bit's "oh that will be a TT bike in a few week's" very tounge in cheek and then went on about the difference of putting milk in tea before the water and not much about racing. Very dry sense of humour.
P.S Great sideburn's as well !
