Unstoppable Michael Dunlop, victory and absolute record in the Tourist Trophy


After the week of training rigor, the Tourist Trophy of the Isle of Man was the starting gun. There, between bikes of 500cc 2-stroke and derived from MotoGP, Michael Dunlop has taken victory in the legendary Senior category, often directly related to the figure of the immeasurable John McGuinness, who exceeded for more than 30 seconds. Dunlop fulminó all records and have gotten with a return to 133.962 mph average, something more than 215 km/h.

It has also been a great week for Ian Hutchinson, with victory in the category Superstock and with a double in the Supersport to add up to 14 trophies in the TT and match as well to the mythical figure of Mike Hailwood. Unfortunately, this edition of the race the world's most dangerous has been particularly bloody, and this week had to regret two other deaths, those of Ian Bell and Andrew Bear.

Speaking of competition, it is impossible not to mention the news that has shaken the paddock of MotoGP. After the farewell of Luis Salom, his team sent a statement in which, in short, is blamed for the accident of Louis to a bump in the curve 12. However, that release has not liked pilots and organizers. In fact, in other media there is talk of the possibility that it had been the other the cause of the accident.

In addition, starting next year, Jorge Lorenzo and Ramon Forcada take directions completely different. Forcada, who has been ever present at the championships earned by Jorge in MotoGP, not to accompany the spaniard on his journey by Ducati.

Changing the third, we started the week talking about the possibility of a new segment of bikes: the trail of small displacement. Jesus asked, “if you have worked well the nakeds, why not the trails?”. It seems that someone else has been asking the same question because there are already rumors of a new Kawasaki Versys 250.


To end the week, I leave you with the last of the WrenchMonkees of the hand of Luis Font. A job care the most about the structure of a Yamaha XSR-900. Touches of earth color bases, some spoked wheels from 17" to show off the raw tacos, the Continental TKC and an exhaust SC Project high to be pleasing to the ear.

Have a nice Sunday!
