The Isle of Man TT’s gladiatorial time trials kept us on the edge of our seat all week. Here’s a rundown of all the races and how they were won.


Supersport TT 1 - Michael Dunlop equals legendary uncle

An incident on the mountain mile delayed the start of the TT by 90 minutes, but racing eventually got going on Saturday afternoon with the first of two Supersport TTs.

After a difficult qualifying week, it was Honda’s Dean Harrison who flew out of the blocks to build a near two-second lead over the opening lap. Harrison later admitted he was trying to strike as early as possible, as he knew he’d unlikely have the legs as the race wore on.

His suspicions were correct as, by the start of the third of the four laps, Michael Dunlop had worked his way to the top of the timing screens with a four second lead over Davey Todd, who had also overthrown the works Honda. All eyes were Todd’s new Ducati and whether he would be able to reel in Dunlop after the 25-time winner opted not to change his rear tyre earlier.

Even without fresh rubber though, Dunlop stretched his lead on the final lap to secure victory by eight seconds and to equal his uncle, the great Joey Dunlop, on 26 TT wins.

Harrison completed the podium places, with James Hillier in fourth and James Hind scoring a fantastic fifth place after a hugely impressive ride. Peter Hickman struggled throughout the race, while Jamie Coward’s promising start ended as soon as he exited the pits due to mechanical issues.

Supersport TT 1 Result:

1st - Michael Dunlop - 26th TT Win

2nd - Davey Todd +8.5s

3rd - Dean Harrison +22.3s

4th - James Hillier +41.4s

5th - James Hind +1.4s


Sidecar TT 1 - Hometown heroes dominate

A new winner was guaranteed in the opening Sidecar race thanks to both Tom Birchall’s sudden retirement in the winter and brother Ben’s withdrawal after an incident at the top of the Mountain in qualifying.

Qualifying results suggested that the Crowe brothers were the clear favourites, while Pete Founds and Jevan Walmsley, seemed less under control, struggling to get to grips with the new Hoosier tyres. Birchall’s withdrawal meant that Founds would now lead on the road, rather than having anyone to chase.

However, this changed after just 19 miles, as the Crowe brothers stormed past the FHO Racing outfit through Sulby and never looked back. Home-town driver Ryan managed the perfect race to claim the first Manx since Dave Molyneux a decade ago.

Alan Founds secured third place over a minute back, with nephew Rhys Gibbons. Meanwhile, reigning World Champions Todd Ellis and Emmanuelle Clement came home seventh, becoming the fastest ever sidecar newcomers and Clement the fastest ever female passenger in the process.

Sidecar TT 1 Results:

1st - Ryan Crowe/Callum Crowe - 1st TT win

2nd - Pete Founds/Jevan Walmsley +26.8s

3rd - Alan Founds/Rhys Gibbons +1:14.3s

4th - Lewis Blackstock/Patrick Rosney +9.0s

5th - Lee Crawford/Scott Hardie +0.5s


Superbike TT - Peter Hickman prevails 

You’re never guaranteed anything at the TT. At the opening Big Bike race, it looked like Michael Dunlop was going to cruise to his second win of the week, but an issue on the visor change for resulted in in him having to pull over on the run down Bray Hill. Taking it upon himself to repair his helmet, Dunlop forfeited the lead, losing almost a minute in the process.

It was Dean Harrison who found himself in the lead with Peter Hickman snapping at his heels. With no Dunlop to chase, Harrison was unable to hold back the chasing Hickman, who took the lead at Ramsey on the penultimate lap.

Dunlop and Todd put in blisteringly fast laps on their final tour, with Dunlop setting a new Superbike lap record at 135.97mph, and it would be enough for Todd to move up into second place. Dunlop could not better Harrison, though, having to settle for fourth in a “what could have been” moment.

Superbike TT Results:

1st - Peter Hickman - 14th TT win

2nd - Davey Todd +5.8s

3rd - Dean Harrison +5.2s

4th - Michael Dunlop +15.1s

5th - James Hillier +1:32.7s


Supertwin TT 1 - Dunlop dominates to break all-time win record

After a battering of rain, the first Supertwin race got underway 24 hours late in incredibly blustery conditions. Not that these would stand in the way of Michael Dunlop and a 27th victory, however, as he set off down Bray Hill hell-bent on making amends for the Superbike Sunday dramas. The pace in which Dunlop started was immense, and by the end of the first lap he had a comfortable 10 second lead over Peter Hickman’s Swan Yamaha.

By the time the riders entered the pits for their splash’n’dash stops, Hickman had clawed his way back into second after a slow start. With Dunlop and Hickman looking fairly secure in the top two positions, the fight was on for the final podium place.

By the second lap there was a virtual dead-heat between Jamie Coward and Dominic Herbertson, who was chasing a first TT podium alongside Mike Browne and Rob Hodson - the four separated by less than five seconds. However, while Hodson and Browne would fade away, Herbertson latched onto the back of Peter Hickman and bettered his personal best Supertwin lap to secure third place.  

Coward followed Dunlop home to set the second fastest lap of the race, but it was not enough to overhaul Herbertson for the podium, while Dunlop took the historic victory.

Supertwin TT 1 Results:

1st - Michael Dunlop - 27th TT win

2nd - Peter Hickman +20.4s

3rd - Dom Herbertson +14.3s

4th - Jamie Coward +5.4s

5th - Mike Browne +24.0s


Superstock 1 - Davey Todd breaks TT duck in thrilling style

Two days later than scheduled, the Superstock class joined the fun on Thursday afternoon to produce one of the most thrilling races in recent years; the duel between Davey Todd and Peter Hickman was fought tooth and nail until the final sector of the race.

Todd flew out of the blocks, but Hickman had closed the gap to under a tenth of a second by the time riders reached the Bungalow. Todd’s Milwaukee BMW team gave him a huge leg up going in the mandatory pitstop at the end of lap one, and he led Hickman’s FHO BMW by over four seconds into Glen Helen for lap two.

With only a half a second gap the gap at Ballaugh on the final lap, it looked as though the fairytale was going to end in heartbreak, but the mountain road was Davey Todd’s domain and by the finish line he had a gap of 2.2 seconds. Some may say that he was helped by Peter Hickman having to work his way past James Hillier over the mountain, but Todd had to work past both John McGuinness and Jamie Coward on the run from the Bungalow down to Cronk-ny-Mona.

With the focus on the-all BMW battle for the top two, it was easy to forget there was a close race for the final podium position between the works Honda of Dean Harrison and record-breaking Michael Dunlop’s MD Racing Honda. Dunlop would eventually finish third, almost four seconds ahead of Harrison.

Superstock TT 1 Results:

1st - Davey Todd - 1st TT Win

2nd - Peter Hickman +2.2s

3rd - Michael Dunlop +17.7s

4th - Dean Harrison +3.6s

5th - James Hillier +32.5s


Sidecar TT 2 - Crowe brothers do the double

Ben Birchall returned to the TT start line for the second sidecar race, but would only do half a lap before a red flag halted proceedings following an incident involving newcomers Todd Ellis and Emmanuelle Clement at the Waterworks.

The race would be re-run just a couple of hours later, and the Crowe brothers were once again untouchable, finally breaking the 120mph barrier on their second (and final) lap of the shortened race. The brothers admitted it felt better than Saturday’s win purely for the fact they were sharing the podium with both Ben Birchall and Dave Molyneux.

Competing in what may be his final ever TT, the 17-time winner came home third to rapturous applause, beating Alan Founds and Rhys Gibbons by almost seven seconds alongside his young passenger Jake Roberts.

Sidecar TT 2 results:

1st - Ryan Crowe/Callum Crowe - 2nd TT win

2nd - Ben Birchall/Kevin Rousseau +20.4s

3rd - Dave Molyneux/Jake Roberts +1:13.1s

4th - Alan Founds/Rhys Gibbons +6.8s

5th - Lewis Blackstock/Patrick Rosney +4.7s


Supersport TT 2 - Dunlop doubles up in Supersport

Someone on the Isle of Man had angered the weather gods. Poor conditions meant Saturday would be a triple feature of shortened Supersport, Supertwin, and Senior TTs, and the cancellation of the second Superstock race.

Desperate to score the double in what has become ‘his’ class, Michael Dunlop shot out the gates and leapt to the top of the timesheets. For most of the opening lap, it seemed like it would be a straight fight between Dunlop and Todd for the win, but by the time they had returned to the Grandstand, Dean Harrison had worked his way into second place, less than a second behind Dunlop’s Yamaha.

Despite the shortened race length, it was fairly quiet in terms of position switching near the front; the top three comfortable in their positions throughout the second and final lap. The all-Triumph battle for fourth was a little closer, with Jamie Coward latching onto the back of Harrison to get the better of Peter Hickman over the Mountain and down to the chequered flag.

Supersport TT 2 Results:

1st - Michael Dunlop - 28th TT win

2nd - Dean Harrison +3.8s

3rd - Davey Todd +2.3s

4th - Jamie Coward +8.3s

5th - Peter Hickman +2.2s


Supertwin 2 - Two wins in a day for Dunlop

Dunlop turned up the wick to its highest point in the second Supertwin race, pulling out a three second lead by the first timing point at Glen Helen on lap one.

Holding a six second lead at the start of lap two, a discontented Dunlop continued to pull further ahead, but with an almost guaranteed lap record on the horizon, a red flag brought proceedings to an end. The race would be declared final with the standings at the end of lap one, handing Dunlop his 29th TT win.

Peter Hickman once again came home in second place, while Mike Browne and Dominic Herbertson were battling for third at the time of the red flag.

Supertwin TT 2 Results:

1st - Michael Dunlop - 29th TT win

2nd - Peter Hickman +6.4s

3rd - Mike Browne +7.9s

4th - Dom Herbertson +3.3s

5th - Paul Jordan +9.3s


Senior TT - Davey Todd cruises to victory

Despite delays and uncertainty, glorious evening sunshine greeted the blue riband Senior TT. All eyes were on Dunlop as he aimed to increase his win tally to 30, become only the second ever person to win five races in a week, and the first to win three in one day.

It was not to be, though. Dunlop suffered a clutch issue on the run up the mountain on the first lap, robbing him of any opportunity to take his hat-trick. From here, Peter Hickman reminded everyone how good he can be, smashing the Senior TT lap record on the first lap.

Showing just how much Hickman was pushing, a rare accident occurred when he slid off the road at Ginger Hall, walking away and straight into the pub. His incident gave Davey Todd a golden opportunity to double his TT win tally, which he did with gusto. He consolidated his margin to the point where he treated the fans at the start line to a trifecta of wheelie, stoppie, and burnout.

Josh Brookes put in the ride of his week, safely beating Dean Harrison to take second place, while Harrison’s works Honda rounded out the podium.

Senior TT Results:

1st - Davey Todd - 2nd TT win

2nd - Josh Brookes +39.0s

3rd - Dean Harrison +26.2s

4th - James Hillier +37.3s

5th - John McGuinness +27.4s
