So onto the senior TT and after a flying start at Glen Helen on lap 1 William had a race lead of over 1.3 seconds, at the end of opening lap he was second only 0.8 of a second behind race leader Michael Dunlop. Up to lap 3 William was still in good contention for victory until he suffered a big crash over the mountain.

Fortunately William was ok and although TT 2014 ended in disappointing fashion there’s loads of positives to take out from this years Isle of Man TT for the Tyco Suzuki by TAS rider. Which include new personal best lap speed of over 130.8 mph, another podium finish and that the pace is there for the supremely talented rider to become a TT winner.
