Monday Morning Wakeup Call | MotoCzysz Helmetcam Video

Last night MotoCzysz posted this video and I stopped everything to watch it as soon as I saw the tweet. I’d heard about it from Mark Miller when I interviewed him, so I was really looking forward to seeing it. This beautiful video, narrated by the racers, does a better job than anything else to show what it’s really like to race the Isle of Man.

Yes, that’s air you see under Michael Rutter’s rear tire, from his teammate Mark Miller’s vantage point. I’m looking forward to being at Isle of Man next year to see who will be the first to break the ton. I suspect we’ll see more than one bike achieve this milestone, with the 10,000 quid prize going to the fastest of them. Read more about 2011’s race here. View our interview with MotoCzysz racer Mark Miller here.
