Whether its the famous TT or the Manx GP, The Ulster race or whatever circuit you'd like, it matters not: this is all about the fastest a man can ride his bike on the country roads. Yes, it's also a deadly sport with very few lucky fellows being granted a second chance after making a mistake.

So next time when you speed in the city, just remember you're not the kings and queens of the road. No matter how fast you think you are, these guys will show you the true meaning of road racing... even if they have to do it on a wet country road.

And, by the way, you might just get a chance to see how good you are, as the TT might make it to a worldwide level. Read this Autoevolution piece for more details.
