TT TRILOGY - DAINESE's ISLE OF MAN VIDEO SERIES

Unquestionably the most exciting and most dangerous racing in the world, the Isle of Man TT is an event that shouldn't happen today. If you proposed racing 37.7 miles around an island, through villages, scraping stone walls and down tree-lined roads, it would be abandoned for safety reasons. Yet a few well-placed straw bays and air fences have allowed the IOM TT races to continue since 1911.

The unimaginable speed and unexplainable bravery of the riders bring thousands of spectators to the island every year to witness something truly unique. And while Velocity Channel is presenting the TT races on TV this week, you can get an insight into the event through a series of three documentary films produced by motorcycle clothing manufacturer Dainese. These set out to capture the personal stories behind the TT, talking not only to racers but also spectators and island residents.

The first film 'The Island' is released today at bit.ly/11kyJ9J

The second 'The Race' will be available on June 10, with the final part 'The Legend' on June14.
