Anyone else watch this? These guys are true lunatics. Awesome lunatics with enormous balls, but lunatics none the less. Since 1945 there has only been 2 fatality free years. Yikes. If you have a few hours to kill go down the youtube rabbit hole.

Sadly Adam Lyon, 26 from Helensburgh in Scotland was killed in an incident during the Supersport 1 Race today at the Isle of Man TT Races. The accident occurred at Casey’s just after the 28th mile of the course on the 3rd lap of the race.

Adam was a newcomer to the TT this year. He qualified in 24th place for today’s race with a fastest lap of 122.261 which he improved to 122.636mph on the opening lap of today’s race. His fastest lap of the TT course – 123.443 - was in Friday’s Superbike qualifying session.

Adam lapped at 122.499 as a newcomer at the Ulster Grand Prix in 2017, finishing 11thin the second Supersport race. He finished sixth in the 2010 Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship with podiums at Croft and Silverstone.

Thoughts are with Adams family, his girlfriend Sarah and team mates at this sad time.

That's too bad. Such a small margin for error at those speeds on that course.

It's one thing to go crazy fast, but one mistake on most of these stretches, and the rider is going to literally fly right into the side of a pub. Not some single brick layer pub either, but a stone built pub or shop with 12 inch thick walls. No amount of padding can save a life flying into that at over 70MPH
