TT week is upon us once more.

If you want to catch up on each days events, there is a program on ITV4 at 9pm each night.

Sadly we've already lost a rider earlier in the week during qualifying, Yoshinari Matsushita.

Road racing is on a different planet. Those riders are amazing. Will be glued to it as always.

I remember going to the north west 200 as a young lad with my dad and that's what sparked my enthusiasm for bikes, remember hanging over a hedge wondering what all the fuss was eating a ice cream and Joey Dunlop came past on the vimto Honda vtr sp2 at 200mph and all I could smell was this intoxicating mix of petrol, oil and rubber and my interest was born!

Done my bike test at 17 before my car test and had a Aprilia rs250 for few weeks, Havnt rode since, that was 10 years ago. Would love to get back in the saddle some day, have a real soft spot for a big duke after watching fogarty back in the day.

37 miles at an average of 129mph on a superbike:)

The Supersport 600s are not that much slower.

Only highlights on ITV4 at 9pm everyday.

Not aware of it being streamed live but you could watch the webcams

I think there are some feeds on IOMTT.com.

As it's a time trial with each rider going off at 10 sec intervals and racing against the clock it's very difficult to follow compared to normal racing.

Great fun those little 2 strokes. Had a Suzuki RGV250 myself, although one of the least powerful bikes I've owned it was one of the most fun:)

I love strikers too had a rg125 gamma, cagiva mito, mk1 rs250. I'd love a mc28 pro arm but the cost of them is just stupid.

No and can't remember if there ever was. Back in tne day it used to be around of the World Championship, so possibly then.

The event lasts a week and the majority of the riders ride 6 classes of bike now so would be hard to have all races live.
