I used to have some respect for Wayne but that's just gone out of the window now... What a pathetic comment - thousands of miles are ridden during the TT fortnight by all involved and yes, two riders died, but one was very experienced and had ridden plenty of road races. These accidents are as unfortunate as the accidents suffered by Kato, Bridewell, Jones, Sanders, Martin, Jones and numerous others in modern bike racing, but Wayne doesn't seem to grasp that all riders are racing for their love of the sport.

As for the two trolls/halfwits on this thread, they should have their typing digits bandaged up or chopped off...

"I am sure all TT fans would quickly change their tune when Conner Cumins or Guy Martin dies from racing around this "death trap""

You are 100% wrong.

My favorite roadracer of all time was Big Dave Jeffries who died at the TT. I didn't call for it to banned - nor did his family. Or the TT fans.

The greatest of them all with the most fans, Joey Dunlop, died in some obscure road race in Estonia and his fans still love him, roadracing, and the TT.

Wayne,thankfully we still have something called freedom of choice.
Anyone who rides at the TT does so because they want to, so at least let them have the option.

It is a shame when a former champion is so neglected and feels sorry for himself that he has to raise the old IOM issue in order to put hi name in the limelight
FFS Wayne you were one of the real crazys in your day and you have the nerve to talk like this
