De­spite a dis­as­trous crash for Id­don and the BMW Mo­tor­rad 39 squad after team-mate Raf­faele de Rosa crashed twice in the open­ing hour, the Tyco BMW rider told MCN the 8-Hour was one of the best ex­pe­ri­ences of his ca­reer.

“I think hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ties made it even sweeter. We fin­ished some­thing like 60th out of 62, but we didn’t think we’d even get go­ing. Raf­faele had a crash early on and that bumped a sen­sor and caused the sec­ond crash, and it pretty much to­talled the bike. But they fixed it.”
