Rut­terly bril­liant

Michael Rut­ter has been in hot form in 2017 and he man­aged to carry that over into the Light­weight race. Aboard the Ital­ian­made Pa­ton, the 45-year-old held off the hard-charg­ing Martin Jes­sopp and Peter Hick­man. This in­cred­i­ble shot shows Jes­sopp, Rut­ter and Ivan Lintin locked in a 160mph bat­tle over the Moun­tain. Rut­ter said: “The bike ran per­fectly, al­though I was imag­in­ing all sorts of noises on the last lap. It’s been a good week.”
