TT3D Closer To The Edge

This is a documentary about those bonkers TT riders, and jolly good it is too.

It is narrated by Jared Leto of all people, I guess they needed an American accent to help make it palatable for the American market.

It follows Guy Martin, one of the top TT riders. He is quite a character and at first I thought he was an actor, he was just so confident and natural in front of the camera. But as it turns out he is a real motorcycle riding chap, and has had some experience in television. He is not afraid to speak his mind, something that F1 drivers need to do.

This documentary was made during the 2010 TT which claimed the lives of two riders, one a Kiwi. Another rider had a huge crash and was very lucky to survive, and Guy Martin himself had a big crash.

I cannot think of any other racing in the world as crazy bananas as this, they race at speeds up to 320 km/h through narrow roads and over some pretty hairy jumps.

A very good watch, and would have been great to see in 3D.
