Moderately paced lap

Not sure if this has been posted in the past but just got done watching this. It completely baffles my mind people are allowed to race here. I'm a fan, I think my mouth was open for the majority of the video.

Also, here is an onboard lap with commentary from Guy Martin:






I'm always right.

Theres also a decent quality HD video of Ian Hutchinsons (the only man to get 5 solo wins at the TT) on board lap, BUT the video's kinda ruined by a crappy soundtrack played over the engine noise, but its a mental looking lap none the less.

I read once that one of the rider's heart rate averaged 200bpm and peaked at 230bpm during practice lap. Normal heart rate is 80bpm at rest and about 120bpm during exercise. Crazy stuff.

Thats a hugely personal thing though, Dr Costa said when they first started doing rider telemetry in Motogp he said Rossi's heartbeat was the lowest of anyone else's out there on the grid by far, was something like 120bpm, he was so relaxed and comfy on the bike that it barely went up, meanwhile Max Biaggi is screaming round the track with a bpm of 190 trying to catch rossi lol

Michael Schumacher's was reported to be in the 60's during race conditions. He was quite the physical specimen in his prime.

If a top riders heart rate is even close to 200 bpm, they should either retire or do more cardio.(unless during a nasty highside...in which case other bodily functions may lose control as well.)

its probably easier to keep it low in a car, your only moving your arms and feet a few inches at a time, where as on a bike your hopping around on it like an electrocuted monkey
