We already knew any entrant into the Isle of Man TT is a little bit crazy. The 37 mile race has averaged two deaths per year since its first running in 1911. To go back each year on faster and faster machines takes guts. If any more proof was needed, watch James Hillier with the save of his life.
It is a little easier to be so confident (Foolish?) when you have the skills (Luck?) to survive that kind of wild ride, but how does he keep going? Knowing the history of this track, after a scare like that, mere mortals would never touch a motorcycle again. But that is what separates us regular joes and the professional nut jobs that brave the Isle of Man TT every year.
