Now, these vids aren’t mine, but YouTube finds. Just thought I post them here.
First one: Rider sticks it in the hedge just before the Gooseneck on Mad Sunday in what looks like a failed attempt to immitate a lawnmower. According to the video description, he walked away from it:
Video number two doesn’t contain any actual footage from the incident, but still serves as a stark reminder that it only takes one mistake to swap a seat on the Grandstand for a bed in Nobles. The description reads as follows:
“Binned it at Guthries Memorial on Mad Sunday 2010, 90mph, Four Days in Hospital, Seriously damaged the blood supply to left foot, Broken 4 bones (dont ask me which ones ???) Smashed me left arm and damaged the nerves and tendons to left arm Lucky am still here thow!! Ride Safe”
Number three shows a crash during Lap 1 of the Senior TT at the Creg. Looks like it was a minor off, with only a bruised ego (and a damaged bike) as a result. Can someone confirm the name of the rider involved here?
