16 TT wins ‘I wasn’t sat­is­fied with eight’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

Hutchin­son’s in­jury has slightly over­shad­owed his achieve­ments at this year’s TT, where the Bin­g­ley Bul­let scored his 15th and 16th moun­tain course wins to be­come the third most suc­cess­ful solo rider in his­tory be­hind Joey Dun­lop and John Mcguin­ness.

“When you’re in the lower num­bers at the TT no­body re­ally cares,” he says. “Of course, it’s great when you win but you’ve only one or two or what­ever. When I got to eight, I had my in­juries but I wasn’t sat­is­fied with that num­ber. It never sounded that good, so I came back and won another eight! Now I’m a 16-time TT win­ner. I don’t think any­one has re­ally thought about that!”
