absolutely fantastic.

and i have to applaud (!) the itv coverage, having recorded it all i absolutely enjoyed sitting down to watch the suberbike race and find a half hour of reminiscing and the the sidecar races. no offence to sidecar racers, but come on... the tt is already on an obscure channel, you really dont have to make it worse

'Losing the front big style'. Michael is the man of the moment and no mistake, but if what he says is true (and I doubt it, as he's always talking this kind of stuff to grab a headline), he's headed for disaster on Friday. He showed great maturity in the f1, make no mistake, but he's in danger of getting carried away.
I'm surprised that JMcG did what he did and how he did it last lap on Monday, but there's a danger of losing respect for the circuit, which is fatal.

Great ride by MD.

But argh the coverage is crap! There is so much potential to make it brilliant viewing, but instead we get a 1hr programme (of which only 30 mins is actual racing) - the same few riders and the same shots/slo-mo's every lap!

Also can't stand Steve Parrish... sort it out ITV!

Itv do a good job, and they are trying to make it more accessible for the non-fanatic, which rules out most of us here.
But Parrish is consistently poor and they need to chop him. The F1 race coverage on Sunday was so much better as he wasn't there. Boring, cliched and embarrassing. Time to go Steve.
