Classic Racer: We Ride the Mountain with Croz, Almost - Exclusive
Never one to miss an opportunity Malc Wheeler tagged along when Graeme
Crosby got to ride a lap of the TT Mountain Course, on his original XR69 at
the Manx Grand Prix Festival. As is often the case on Mona's Isle things
didn't go quite to plan.
It's the first thing you forget about racing on the TT Mountain Course,
sometimes it rains! Which of course is what it did the moment Kiwi ace
Graeme Crosby and me were directed to the start line for our ride on the
best 37.73 miles of tarmac in the world. And then it poured down.
When I heard that Croz, one of the nicest guys you'll meet in our sport,
was to do a parade lap of the Mountain between races at this years Manx I
started to hatch a plan to tag along. Our original plan looked pretty
impressive. Croz was set to ride the original Suzuki diesel from Steve
Wheatman's impressive, and still growing, collection on which he won one of
his TT's and I would ride shotgun on the John Sims built XR 69 replica on
which Michael Dunlop won last years Classic Superbike race.
That was before lady luck took a hand. Michael Dunlop's new 2011 XR69
replica was lacking a few horse power which saw him revert to the tried and
tested winner from the year before. So it was back to plan B, which luckily
I had hatched the weekend before.
A chance meeting with Chris Barratt, who has a small but very tasty
collection of racing two-strokes, resulted in him offering me a ride on his
TZ750 Yamaha. Chris was on the Island for the Festival of Jurby, so travel
plans were already in place. Half dozen laps at the Festival of Jurby
confirmed two things for me, Chris knows how to prepare a race bike and
that I love TZ750's.
You can see from the short onboard clip the weather didn't play fair and
the water brought the big TZ to an undignified halt when the Manx rain
seeped into the electrics. It was fun while it lasted!
