Isle of Man TT 2009 – Dainese Superbike
All four Americans were in good spirits before the start and Mark Miller (photo) showed why when he came home in 11th place to claim a Bronze with a 121.528-mph average just missing out on a Silver replica. Jimmy Moore rode a steady, but creditable race on his Yamaha to come home in 22nd with a race average of 117.822 mph and also claim a Bronze replica.
TT virgins James Vanderhaar on his Kawasaki and CR Gittere on his Honda both finished, taking the last two finisher’s places, 49th and 50th, respectively. Certainly something to be cherished given the number of non-finishers from over 75 starters, including some top and fancied riders! Jenny Tinmouth came 44th.
Manx team Dave Molyneux and Dan Sayle won the Sure Sidecar Race 1
