RRAMSEY, ISLE OF MAN - JUNE 05: The shore off Ramsey catches the evening light in the distance as a competitor rides during a practice session on June 5, 2009 on the Isle Of Man, United Kingdom. Adverse weather conditions prevented the much anticipated Superbike race from taking place on Saturday and, depending on the rain, may be off all weekend. The annual TT race is one of the highlights of the motorbike racing calender with fans travelling from around the globe to watch riders compete in the 37 and three quarter mile lap exceeding speeds of 200mph.

The Isle of Man TT remains one of a kind. A dying breed of gladiatorial races where safety trails spectacle. What occurs during these two weeks stands as one of the most fascinating, mind-blowing acts of sporting heroism ever.
