Dis­tance from start line 28.9

miles/13min 02 Spec­ta­cle 175mph knee-down drift­ing, up a moun­tain Set in bleak moor­land, this is the ul­ti­mate TT cor­ner. In the words of Michael Rut­ter: “You get to it ev­ery lap and think, ‘Oh god – here we go’.” The best rid­ers are drift­ing across the road. To get there, park at Moun­tain Box be­fore the roads shut, walk to­wards the bend and wrig­gle un­der the bridge. A trail bike gets you back to Sulby Glen.
