Just got back from my holidays in France to hear the terrible news about the death of Steve Hislop. On top of the recent loss of the great Barry Sheene, and of course DJ at the TT this must be one of the darkest periods ever for UK bike racing.
I followed the TT for years and every time there is a death I wonder if its worth it to have a race there. Every time I go I say it is worth it , but even though safety is high the track will take lives time and again. RIP all who crashed there.
