ISLE OF MAN – Starting in 1907, the Isle of Man tourist trophy is a motorsport for motorcyclists to try their luck at winning the hardest motorcycle race in the world. Over 250 riders have died since its beginning and several spectators have been killed as well.

The Isle of Man TT has had many different classes over the years, but currently there are only six still in place. The Senior TT is the most esteemed class as it is meant for the highest capacity motorcycles. The Isle of Man TT is the most dangerous race in the world, seeing more deaths than every other motorsport. The reward for winning is only 30,000. This is because most riders only participate for the fun of it.

All in all, The Isle of Man TT is the riskiest race with the reward of being one of the best motorcyclists on the earth. The memory of the original participants of the Isle of Man TT stay alive with each race that takes place.
