Birchalls win, they eased off on lap 3 and still managed a 117.7mph lap, all 3 laps were inside the standing lap record which they held anyway from last year.

John Holden and Lee Cain came second setting a 117.3 lap, not bad for a 60 year old eh? It turns out that the competitors involved in the crash in the red flagged race earlier were Johns wife Fiona and his father in law Tony Baker.

Tim Reeves and Mark Wilkes came 3rd with Reeves setting his personal best lap at 115.7.

What a day to start the racing at TT 2018, an emotional win for the Tyco BMW team in the Superbike race, a new race record from Michael Dunlop, a new outright lap record for Dean Harrison who retired with clutch trouble on lap 4 and a record breaking Sidecar race

Enough updates from me I'm afraid as I'm off to the Island tomorrow morning, see you all a week tomorrow

So do we know what happened to Dean's silicone Kawasaki and why it went bang?
I feel for Dean, I really do, he deserved to win with that 134.4 standings start, I thought he could maybe have pushed a 135 on a flyer.
Having said that, I am chuffed for the Tyco boys, it was nice to see them have the win and dedicate it to Dan.

Wow, Hicky on the stockers was amazing, over 134 average on a stock bike.
Incredible, I am glad he won.
I feel for Michael being delayed by back markers a bit, but it's nice to have different people winning, and he did benefit from Dean's bad luck in the superbikes.
From a racing perspective it's been a great TT so far.

You got that right, missus. The guy can hardly walk and yet he's still blasting around.
If he is fit for next year then he will be fighting for wins, no doubt about it.

SuperSport race 2 was something else too. Dean thoroughly deserved the win, he was pulling away from Michael before any penalties.
Although, I have to admit that I didn't see what Michael got penalised for?
Can't wait for the Senior today, the smart money has to be on Dean.

I reckon-
Dean
Hicky
Michael
