Rain, Wind and Fire…

1 06 2013

Alot of elements have been thrown at the riders this year, causing delays and restricting practice; from the weather right the way through to bike problems, everyone has been affected but no one has taken their eye off their goal.

I met Stephen Thompson, who is riding for ‘the peoples bike’ this T.T., and he is so enthusiastic for the race which shows in the results he’s producing. Hitting some great speeds things can only get better and better for the team.

At the pits, in the Grandstand, the petrol fumes hang in the air and it gets warmer as riders and their team feverishly prepare for the race. Now the weather has improved the aim is for faster laps in shorter times.

Returning after their first lap, riders say conditions seem good, with only one or two corners posing a problem. Guy Martin and Conor Cummins look like they’ve given it everything they’ve got and spend awhile discussing tactics with their pit crew before the next lap. All the riders are pushing themselves to the limit; providing spectators with a spectacular race.

Stephen is doing a fantastic job for ‘the peoples bike’, and now the T.T. Races are underway 2013 looks more than promising for a great result.

I was fortunate enough to get some brilliant footage from the races, which can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/user/123bluepoppy/videos

Here’s to an amazing race!

Let the Races begin.

25 05 2013

The sun beat down onto the Grandstand and the fresh air was tinged with petrol from the engines ready for the race to begin. All the riders are eager for this year’s races; but with that said, at the team awnings there was an atmosphere of chilled satisfaction knowing they’d all done their best setting their rider to race.

As I walked amongst the teams I felt the happy anticipation for this year’s TT and how glad everyone felt to be a part of this magnificent race on our beautiful Isle of Man.

As yet I haven’t heard anything from the peoplesbike, but I can only presume that it’s a good thing, and they are preparing for what’s ahead. If I do get any updates on their progress I will let you know.

 





2013 TT less than a Week Away…

20 05 2013

As a birthday gift this year I was given sponsorship to the peoplesbike.com and I’m looking forward to what this TT experience will bring. I’ve received the T shirt and thank you note; and I’ve been asked to continue with the blog by popular demand – so here goes!

Hoping to put more videos on youtube of this years events and still have some from last year to release and I’m looking forward to it…

To get in-touch please just contact me through youtube and stay tuned.
