The man to beat in 2005 was John Mcguiness, after last years treble all
eyes were firmly focussed on the Morecambe rider.
Riding full time in the highly competitive British Superbike Championship for Alistar Flannigan's AIM Yamaha R1 squad it had been a disappointing season to date with a string of DNF's and a poor showing at the North West 200.
But the TT is the TT, and John did not disappoint in either the inargual Superbike TT or the Senior Race.
The pundits had cited the130mph barrier would be broken but Mcguiness was not pushed hard enough,after all the aim of the game is to win at the slowest speed possible, thats if 124.124 mph race average is your idea of a Sunday run.
