Top 10 Races To See Before You Die

1. Isle Of Man TT

Isle of Mann TT

While Valencia MotoGP is a three-day long party, when it’s TT time at the Isle of Man, the party doesn’t stop for two weeks. In the rare chance you’ve read this far and haven’t heard of the race, check out the video below and then get lost down a rabbit hole of others from this legendary race.

Perhaps the most dangerous motorcycle race in the world, the most powerful bikes in the Senior TT are hitting 200 mph in certain areas, flying within inches of stone walls, curbs, homes, and pubs. Meanwhile, you, the spectator, are virtually in the thick of the action as many viewing locations are mere feet from the course. The entire island is nuts about the race, and while many of the big-name racers typically stick to their motorhomes, sometimes you’ll find the odd one hanging with the masses in the pubs or around town during their downtime.

      Good over all list too…Man, the TV thing just doesn’t do a mile track justice. Hockey and dirt track miles seem to suffer this fate. A mile race on the dirt in person is a must see deal…

    If they were still doing Spa franchorchamps on motoGP,I’d still place it second to IoM.But it would have been a great second:)

    Great list

    Edit:Should be needless to say,but check out TT3D:closer to the edge.It’s documovie from IoM which comes also not 3D :D

    I was hoping #1 would be the Isle of Man! I’m going to make it over soon and bring a bike. They say you can ride the course. The Videos are Unreal!

      Have fun! Yes, there should be opportunities to ride the course. Quite jealous. I’d love to go back.

      If you go there,I would recommend riding around the track very early in the morning (around 5am) rather than mad sunday.Do mad sunday,but be careful then as there are alot of nutters there then.
