No, no, no - it was ME who was going to win every race! I guess we'll never know now, will we...? Unfortunately, this was the only year I could enter.

According to the island's very own news site (www.iomonline.co.im), a decision about the race has NOT been made. The meeting they held today apparently did not result in a final cancellation. It's now after 9pm there, so we (and the racers, and the tourist-support types, and so on) have to wait until at least tomorrow for more.

I agree too about Joey. Great rider, and the only reason I had any interest in the TT's at all.

It's almost like you guys at MO just heard about this or something, and it was all news to you. Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but it sounds like you think it's breaking news yet it still isn't final yet. I thought you all had the final word when I clicked this story, but it's just some guy who emailed you. I've been reading and hearing about the Isle of Man possible cancellation for over a month now, it's not final yet last I heard.

It's all because of you meat eating fools supporting all those huge, nasty, greedy agro conglomorates. Damn you. If everyone was vegan like me we wouldn't have to cancel this race. Burn in hell.

I hope you guys have a reliable source before speading this story. Everything I've read so far (including some of the comments) say that they had a meeting to decide yesterday and were going to announce today. Then today they said no announcement until they talk to some other politicians about it, so probably no decision until next week.



However, I haven't read anything that sounds very promising for it going through.

From the Isle Of Man web site www.iomonline.co.im -


GOVERNMENT ministers have been sensationally gagged from revealing the outcome of a top-level TT crunch meeting.


In a bizarre move, leading politicians have been ordered not to speak about whether the TT has been cancelled — or even if a decision has been made — until Chief Minister Donald Gelling makes a statement to Tynwald next week.





From the story it sounds like there will not be a decision until next week.
