    I had the privilege of going to the IOM TT for work and got ahead of the start line by the tv crew. Here are a few shots taken with my OMD and 35-100mm hand held. Great combo and some definitely came out better than expected.

    James Hillier gets the lightweight going. He went on to win and broke the track record twice despite slowing to come into the pits.

    This is the first Chinese made bike to enter the TT.

    John McGuinness launches into the senior TT. He won the race and equaled Joey Dunlop's twenty win record.

    Guy Martin enters the fray.

    My favourite shot. The first Norton to enter the TT for some time. Both bikes finished so hopefully we will see more of them.

    And another panning shot.

    Hope you like them. C&C welcome.

    Thanks for the pictures. I've been watching it and it's incredible what these guys can do. I think even Valentino Rossi has said he wouldn't do this.
