Tyco Suzuki rider Yoshinari Matsushita killed during Monday night practice

much of the blame at the I.O.M. authorities who for a century have done little to either create a safer new TT course or develop the one they have to be safer. They were so inept they even lost the then world world championship round because they couldn't see beyond their noses. A few seasons ago Connor Cummins was nearly chopped in two because he hurtled into a field past a BARBED WIRE fence. A barbed wire fence doesn't cost much to replace with something safer but they just hadn't bothered. They milk the cow, feast on the annual golden egg and shed crocodile tears when another brave or foolish rider is killed. Every single kerb should be chamfered, every lamppost should be off road etc etc etc. No one can deny the spectacle and the commitment of the riders but that's about it as far as it being a great event is concerned. The I.O.M should be ashamed of itself.
