Some have called it the only 'real' sport left.
Now that the Roman gladiators are nothing more than fables and multi-million dollar movies, the world doesn’t have too many animalistic sports left. That is unless you count the Isle Of Man TT motorcycle race. The deadly competition has already killed two motorcycle racers on its June 4th 2016 opening day, and this footage of a close call between riders Jamie Cowton (who’s motorcycle footage we see here) and fellow rider Horst Saiger shows us just how close each competitor is to death.
Watch as Saiger loses control and crashes into a barrier with debris of the accident coming within inches of derailing Cowton’s attempt for a lap record and his life.
