Eighteen Minutes In Hyperspace: Onboard An IOM TT Superbike

This is Michael Dunlop on lap 3 of the 2013 Isle of Man TT's Monster Energy Supersport Race 2. Or, put another way, it's 18 minutes in hyperspace.

Here's the full YouTube description from the video, to get you up to speed with what you're watching, other than a cut scene from what 2001 A Space Odyssey would've looked like if Kubrick were a motorcycle guy.

It's lap 3 of the 2013 Monster Energy Supersport Race 2 - Michael Dunlop is holding second place on corrected time to Bruce Anstey but trailing John McGuinness and Cameron Donald on the road.

As he leaves the pits it's clear Michael is on a mission to get himself on to the podium for the fourth time in a week.

Blasting down Bray Hill on the PTR tuned MD Racing CBR600RR Dunlop's a man on the move.

With John and Cameron in his sights Michael's in determined move - watch as he dices with these old TT hands and puts a silky move on them at Ramsey Hairpin.

Raphael, have you ever seen any interviews with any of these TT Riders? They're so chill and down to earth and normal people. They aren't pretentious and never full of themselves.

I think last year, John McGuinness had a camera crew following him for a diary of his time at the TT. It was great and really insightful

This was my favorite
