The 2023 Isle of Man TT races seemed to mainly be a battle between Peter Hickman, Michael Dunlop and Dean Harrison. Despite a few mechanical issues these three riders were most commonly fighting for wins. Both Hickman and Dunlop secured 4 wins this campaign. Dunlop will have to wait until 2024 if he wants to extend his legacy and become the most winning TT racer in history. This year the TT seems to have breezed by. With the race finale now complete the riders will pack up and the Isle of Man who’s population ballooned 19% over last years fan turn out will dwindle day by day as normal life returns to the Manx island.
