Hutchy run of su­pers­port suc­cess ends

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Ian Hutchin­son’s run of Su­pers­port TT vic­to­ries came to an end on Mon­day when he fin­ished fifth in what turned out to be the only Su­pers­port race of the week.

How­ever, it wasn’t a lack of pace that thwarted Hutchin­son’s chances of vic­tory. Quick through­out prac­tice, he re­mained the favourite head­ing into the four-lap race but with patches of the course still damp af­ter overnight rain, he was un­sure of con­di­tions af­ter a big mo­ment on a damp patch at Hill­berry – a fourth-gear cor­ner – on the open­ing lap.

“It wasn’t hap­pen­ing for me to­day,” Hutchin­son said af­ter the race. “But con­grat­u­la­tions to the top three for push­ing on in those con­di­tions. I had a mas­sive mo­ment on a damp patch at Hil­berry and I’m not quite sure how I stayed on!”

Hutchin­son was hop­ing to make amends in the sec­ond su­pers­port race, but will now have to wait un­til 2018.
