The TT, as it is commonly known, is the oldest race in motorcycle history, 109 years in existence. For the few days in spring, the incessant roar of motorcycle engines can be heard across the island as racers rev up for the main event: the Senior TT. The Isle of Man TT is the loudest, most rawest form of motorcycle racing on the planet, as brave riders compete with each other at break-neck speeds on public roads which are closed off for the event. Light poles, barricades, bumps and jumps are common, as well as sheer drops around the mountain roads that dot the 37.5 mile long loop. With speeds approaching a frightening 130 mph on an average, that is one lap in less than 18 minutes.  Racers have crashed down the mountain, and have come back to race. Over 245 brave riders have died in the 109 years of the TT’s existence.
