Video: Choose life, choose bikes – Isle of Man TT 2018

It may be over seven months away, but the excitement is already building for the 2018 Isle of Man TT, which will run May 26 through June 8. And to whet your appetite, here’s the official trailer for the iconic outing on the roads of the small island set in the middle of the Irish Sea.

We think that this video is absolutely BRILLIANT. It’s six and a half minutes long and well worth watching in full. It kicks off by paying homage to the iconic Trainspotting movie, with John McGuiness going full Renton and telling us to ‘choose life, choose bikes’. Naturally, the film also sets up the brewing battle between Ian Hutchinson and Michael Dunlop – but it’s the action footage from 2017 event that really got us going. Turn the sound up loud, kick back, and enjoy.
