Let the racing begin.
We chose to view the first race of the day at Hillberry.
It has a view up a long straight stretch, where the riders come screaming down, then a sharp right up an incline. We were right at the front, so were able to watch some great action.

For the afternoon race, we moved further up the mountain to
Creg Ny Baa, a very famous place to watch.
The racers are running at top speeds coming down the mountain before heading towards the finish line.
The finale for the day was a parade lap...check out this video
