It was a difficult decision to cancel the Senior - first time in 107 years, so I am told. I was involved in the discussions between the clerk of the course and riders. It was the right call by the CoC. Some people are drawing lots of silly conclusions as a result of the decision, like superbikes should be removed from the course because they cannot race in the wet. Yes, it might happen again but we had one really good superbike race and I don't think our record in cancelling the senior (once in 107 years) is something that you can draw too many conclusions from. We could run Superbikes in the wet but what we want is a competitive race, not a dangerous lottery dictated more by the road conditions than the skill of the riders. We had no fatal race incidents in TT2012, which is an achievement to be celebrated.
This is more about the weather at the end of last week than the suitability of one particular class of bike for the future. See you in TT2013.
