Ian Hutchinson - genius!

All week I've been following the excellent coverage of the TT races from the Isle of Man on ITV4. Brilliant coverage for a start - the use of many onboard cameras, the helicopter over the mountain and the time checks mean you are really engaged with the unfolding races which given a lap is 37 miles of so is brilliant.

Ian Hutchinson has been the man of the week. He took 5 straight wins, Superbike, Superstock, both Supersport and the senior. Unbelievable! And by the way one of those he won by only just over a second, after 120 miles!

A feat that will only ever be matched and never beaten - and to be frank until this year the 5 in one year was considered impossible for both rider and bikes to be able to keep up to that level on all the races.
