Since 1964 Gosh that makes me feel old.
The only place I came off a bike was on IOM, its a beautiful island & I'm sure that the whole place is in mourning.
RIP Dan.

Bruce Anstey not looking very healthy at present, John McGuiness still out with his bad leg and last night Dan Kneen killed and another rider injured after an incident with a course car on its way to Ramsey for the Dan Kneen accident.

Always disappointed when I can’t be there, but mixed feelings with a practice day that goes so wrong.

GWS soon those that can, RIP Dan Kneen

They venture and sometimes lose
Big "lose" for the family as well. I love Motorcycling and the TT riders are god like imo but the attrition rate is getting silly, surviving offs with 130mph+ laps is becoming less likely.

But more do than don't mainly due to better protective gear.

Another RIP

ACU Events Ltd regrets to confirm that Adam Lyon, 26, from Helensburgh in Scotland was killed in an incident during the Supersport 1 Race today at the Isle of Man TT Races. The accident occurred at Casey’s, just after the 28th mile of the course, on the 3rd lap of the race.

Adam was a newcomer to the TT this year. He qualified in 24th place for today’s race with a fastest lap of 122.261 which he improved to 122.636mph on the opening lap of today’s race. His fastest lap of the TT course – 123.443 - was in Friday’s Superbike qualifying session.

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

ACU Events Ltd wishes to pass on their deepest sympathy to Adam’s family and friends.

It’s the only problem on the IOM, if they lose it there’s no safe run off.
RIP young man :(
