McGuinness tops 130mph in TT practice

The TT's big guns started to pick up the pace in a practice session held in great conditions on Wednesday night.

Absolute lap record holder John McGuinness and Guy Martin both managed to go over 129mph on their Superbikes from standing starts at the beginning of the session.

Then McGuinness, on a flying lap on his Superbike, became the first rider to go through the 130mph barrier this week.

Here's the moment he crossed the line, as described by Chris Kinley: (play clip)

Dave Molyneux went over 114mph again in the sidecars, the only one to do so.

There were a few incidents.

In the solos a number of riders went off but were okay and made their own ways back to the Grandstand.

Another rider who was okay after coming off was Jenny Tinmouth at Sulby Bridge.

Her bike fared less well though and was apparently stuck in a tree.

In the sidecars newcomer Carl Fenwick and his passenger Keir Pedley went off at Cruickshanks.

Fenwick was okay but Pedley was air-medded to Noble's Hospital with a leg injury.
