He said he was going to pre-run approximately 250 miles of the course with one, but no, he is racing the TT.
Telecast at the start is tomorrow morning
I've been watching Bryce Menzies prerunning it on Youtube the past few days. Not sure if all the top TT guys pre-run like that (I assume they do) but what an advantage to spend 3 weeks down there ahead of the race running your day and night time section sometimes a couple times. Along with GPS, hundreds of notes taken and a navigator in car. My how things have changed.

People have no idea the mental and physical endurance this takes. Also, you need a but of luck regarding your bike and it staying together
I’d say it’s mostly mental. Especially after 500 miles marker. It’s being really smart and resting when you need to rest!

30 hours of adrenaline right there!!

Hats off to those guys.

Live feed is sort of a yawner. One boring spot, SXS going by and a guy narrating in Spanish.

I think it was BITD that did a live feed with numerous cameras and drones. They would switch between cameras and narrate, it was really good.

A lot easier to pull that off on a BITD course than a Baja 1k peninsula run

Trucks are about 50 miles behind the last bikes so that will have an impact once they start passing them

Bean was driving Dan's truck a couple years ago and it caught fire and burned to the ground must be nice to trash someone else's stuff and just walk away 😁
