Yeah it's normally in practice week when the shit weather hits, rain is actually forecast for the Isle of Man tonight but looking ok Thursday and while it's looking likely to rain on Friday it seem to be in the morning.

Put it this way they're in much better shape than they were this time last year.

Is it an injury with William? I know he was knocked about after the North West but the report I saw said "personal reasons"

Hopefully, when it's not raining, it will also dry up quick enough, especially under the trees, to get a good few more practice laps in.

I don't know sorry, mate. The first thing I heard about it was on here.

According to the long range forecast apart from tonight and Friday it's looking pretty fine right up to the end of the TT. Surely can't be as bad as last year which was fucking horrendous, I've never known a TT like it, it was a miracle that only one race got canned.

On the flip side I'd also never known a TT like 2016 either where it was perfect for the entire 2 weeks.

One more day of good practice and a dry race week will see me right for another year.

Practice started but has been red flagged due to a tree on fire. Expecting rain at 7:45.

Some serious shit has gone down on the island tonight and the changing of the scheduled TT show on TV has me a bit worried, apparently a rider is in hospital after colliding with a course car at Ballacrye.
