I really hope Josh has thought all of this through!! The TT is no ordinary road race, it is a lethal track and some of the best at it have sadly lost their lives even after years of experience. Josh is a rider that tends to go hell for leather, so I hope he knows exactly what he has let himself in for!! Good luck, but take it real easy!!!

This is another great step forward for the TT, attracting riders of this calibre can only continue to put the TT where it deserves to be - as the best sporting event on the planet. With MotoGp a in a photo finish with the European paint drying championships,WSBK about to be embroiled in Spanish self interest, we could (and I hope) about to see the TT enter a golden age - best of luck to him(and the rest of the grid) in 2013.

Has he ever done a road race before? Thats like going from tea boy to ceo of a multinational in one leap.

Good luck, take it easy a top 20, 30, on your first go is no shame.

I agree with Herewego. Josh is generally a faster rider than the current crop of TT experts. In other words he will try and ride the TT course faster than they do. That scares me in regard to his safety. Its not possible to learn a 38 mile track in the same way as a short circuit and Josh is easily the quickest short circuit rider (in recent times)whos giving the TT a go. Steve Plater being the nearest comparison I suppose.

With BSB going from strength to strength and looking further into Europe for additional venues, why not make the TT part of the BSB championship? award double points at the event, but each rider can drop a round thus not forcing anybody to ride there.

What are you on about? I'm sure it was a rash decision that was made on a whim after downing a bottle of vodka. Stupid comment.

Good on you Josh.

A very big decsion to even to say in public that this is going to happen. First TAS will command a large starting fee and second it will take JOSH a few years to learn the track but the very best of luck.
I would have liked to have heard that Michael Dunlop was on board then we could maybe have a TAS winner.
