Isle of Man TT newcomer Adam Lyon has died after an incident in this morning’s opening Monster Energy Supersport race.

Lyon, 26, from Helensburgh in Scotland, crashed at Casey’s, just after the 28th milestone on the third lap of the Supersport TT.

Making his debut at the TT this year, he had qualified 24th for today’s race with a fastest lap of 122.261mph, which he improved to 122.636mph on the opening lap of the race. He set his fastest lap of the TT course in Friday’s Superbike qualifying with an average speed of 123.443mph.

Adam lapped at 122.499mph as a newcomer at the Ulster Grand Prix in 2017, finished 11th in the second Supersport race. He finished sixth in the 2010 Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship with podiums at Croft at Silverstone.

All at MCN join the wider racing community in extending our deepest condolences to Lyon’s family and friends at this time.
