Michael Dunlop Becomes Most Successful Rider in Isle of Man TT History

Tuesday’s Isle of Man TT Races Postponed Due to Weather

Tuesday’s Isle of Man TT races were postponed due to adverse weather conditions, with widespread rain showers leaving wet patches around the Mountain Course. The decision to call off the day’s events was supported by the majority of riders, who deemed the conditions unsafe for racing.

Originally, the schedule had been delayed, pushing the opening three-lap Superstock race and the Supertwin race to later times. Despite efforts to proceed, the solo warm-up lap revealed the track remained too dangerous, prompting organizers to heed rider feedback and cancel the races.

Northern Ireland’s Paul Jordan, who achieved his first podium in the Supertwin class last year, commended the decision, highlighting the unacceptable risk of racing under such conditions. “We’re here to race and push the limits,” he said. “Tonight’s conditions made that impossible, so it was the safe choice.”

England’s Davey Todd echoed these sentiments, pointing out the unpredictability and risks of the damp course. “Going full bore in a race is entirely different from a warm-up lap,” he remarked, emphasizing the significant danger posed by the track conditions.

The revised schedule now has the Metzeler Supertwin race set for 11:45 am and the RL360 Superstock race at 2 pm on Wednesday. Racing is expected every day until the festival concludes on Saturday with the Senior TT finale.

Among the top contenders is Michael Dunlop, who aims to become the most successful rider in TT history with one more victory. Dunlop demonstrated his skill during the warm-up lap, lapping at over 128mph on his Honda Superstock machine, undeterred by the conditions.
