Interview: Steve Mercer on the Isle of Man TT ‘If the TT didn’t exist, I don’t think I’d be racing’

Racing the Kawasaki ZX10RR in Superbike and Superstock and ZX6R in Supersport, Steve Mercer is challenging for five races at this year’s IOM TT.

We grabbed some time with him over on the Island last week and he spoke to us about what it takes to become a TT racer, and just how much it means to be part of this astonishing road race.

It’s a fascinating insight into the mind and psyche of a top-class motorcycle road racer, as he talks openly about the mental challenge of riding the TT, waking his wife up by changing gears in his sleep and just how good the bikes are straight out of the box these days.
