Unquestionably the most exciting and most dangerous racing in the world, the
Isle of Man TT is an event that shouldn't happen today. If you proposed racing
37.7 miles around an island, through villages, scraping stone walls and down
tree-lined roads, it would be abandoned for safety reasons. Yet a few well-placed
straw bays and air fences have allowed the IOM TT races to continue since 1911.
The unimaginable speed and unexplainable bravery of the riders bring thousands
of spectators to the island every year to witness something truly unique. And
while Velocity Channel is presenting the TT races on TV this week, you can get
an insight into the event through a series of three documentary films produced
by motorcycle clothing manufacturer Dainese. These set out to capture the
personal stories behind the TT, talking not only to racers but also spectators and
The first film 'The Island' is released today at bit.ly/11kyJ9J
The second 'The Race' will be available on June 10, with the final part 'The
Legend' on June14.
