Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

He might have gone into the race as the favourite af­ter win­ning the last two Light­weight TTS, but it was a race to for­get for Ivan Lintin.

He ap­peared not to have the pace to chal­lenge Rut­ter out front, but looked set to take a podium un­til a bro­ken vi­sor clip in the pit­stop cost him vi­tal time as he had to swap hel­mets as well as re-fuel.

The time he lost al­lowed Peter Hick­man to slip into third place, leav­ing the Bard­ney rider to cross the line fourth, some 30 sec­onds off the podium trio.
