My TT feel good factor lasted
right up till about 18:20 on the opening lap of Wednesday's Sidecar Race
B when early leaders Nick Crowe and Mark Cox suffered an horrific crash
on the flat out run to Ballaugh.
The Race was immediately red flagged as a result and wasn't rerun, the injuries to Nick and Mark are very serious and they remain in intensive care.
On the 5th lap of the Senior TT Manx rider John Crellin lost his life in a crash on the mountain section, only hours before John had stood on the podium after finishing 3rd in the inaugural TTXGP race.
