Isle of Man TT: McGuinness Victorious

John McGuinness won his 18th TT today when he took victory in the Dainese Superbike race. The Honda TT Legends rider overcame an early challenge from Cameron Donald and, in his usual manner, once in front he was able to gradually pull away. Aided by two incredibly slick pit stops, a lead of six seconds at half race distance became...

Another superb win by McGuinness and while I don't think Martin had the pace to win he deserved a podium. Not only did the rear spindle problem mean he had to do four laps on one tyre, but it looks like that's what slowed his first stop too. Without that he would have had a comfortable podium. Remember 2010 when he had to scrounge back his old swing arm so he could get the wheel changes right? Be interesting to see how his stops go for the rest of the week.

Competition

Everything has not quite clicked into place for Guy yet to win a TT. I thought after his 2010 he may not have the determination, but that is clearly wrong. He rode fantastically.

John McGuiness seems to have the right package and always looks comfortable in the lead. Rather like Joey use to be. Well done to Cameron Donald for putting up a fight. However you have to wonder whether if pushed John could go faster.

William Dunlop is looking better and better. I think he'll be the one to beat in the Supersport.
