THE RYAN ROAD SHOW AT THE POST-TT
SUNDAY 15TH JUNE 2014
The two Ryans, (Kneen and Cringle) put on a red hot show for the Jurby faithful at a sunny post -TT meeting. The day’s Centre Championship races saw a win apiece for the pair after two terrific duels under the blazing hot sun on a windless and warm summer’s day on the Great Northern Plain. Ryan Cringle added two 600 wins to his tally for good measure.Crowds were somewhat down for the post-T.T. event. This is understandable with a lot of people feeling all “biked out”.

Paul and Peter were joined by Curly Batty who added her input to proceedings, while keeping a motherly eye on son Joe Broomfield, who was competing. Curly also provided her co-commentators with some excellent sausage and bacon baps. The rumblings of the “Private Idiots Club” got a little out of hand during practice with Peter noticing the two teepee shaped tents left over from the T.T. Motofest festival. The tents were on the exit from Nans corner. Comments included “if anyone goes too wide out of Nans they will be sitting in those tents with the Indians” and “I am sure I saw some smoke signals telling us the sidecars were approaching” In fact I am sure Paul was referring to the corner as Apache Pass. Enough! On to the racing….
