The Official Review of the Isle of Man TT 2014 – four hours
of non-stop action. The hard part was deciding what to leave out!
If 2013 was seen as Michael Dunlop’s coming of age, 2014
surely put beyond any doubt he is the man to beat on the Mountain Course.
For the second year in succession Dunlop dominated proceedings
by winning four races seemingly without expending any effort.
It says a great deal about his abilities that three of those
victories came on BMW machinery, a year after he won four for Honda.
Dunlop’s hegemony didn’t extend to the Lightweight TT where Dean
Harrison took a popular maiden win and Gary Johnson got the crowds on their
feet with an emphatic victory in the first Supersport race; Triumph’s first TT
win in a decade and the first for an English rider on an English bike since
It was a great meeting for the Harrison family as Conrad,
Dean’s dad, achieved his lifetime aim of standing on the top step of the TT
podium, after 21 years of trying. He, and passenger Mike Aylott, received
rapturous applause for the feat in Sidecar race 1.
In the second leg of the sidecars Dave Molyneux and Patrick
Farrance took the laurels, the 17th time ‘Moly’ has held the trophy
and the third for Patrick.
He may not have won any of the ‘traditional’ races this year
but John McGuinness entered the record books with his 21st victory,
riding the Mugen Shinden electric bike. Despite the unconventional power source
John still hustled it around at an incredible 117mph average.
His team mate Bruce Anstey left without any victories but
with something equally as important: the absolute lap record. The enigmatic
Kiwi scorched around the 37.73 mile circuit at an astonishing average speed of
132.298mph on the last lap of the superbike race.
It’s all on here and loads more besides in the most
comprehensive TT review of all time.
