More Favourable Press for the TT

Manx Independent - 15 November 1996

THE TT races continue to receive excellent coverage worldwide, with three hours on the history of the races on Eurosport alone this week and another prime TV spot on the Channel 4 programs 'Ride On' on Tuesday evening. This latest article appeared in a recent edition of Italian bike magazine Tuttomoto, and consists of six full-colour pages on the 1996 event, written and compiled by Italian racer Francesca Giordano.

Included is an interview with 11-times winner Steve Hislop, an illustrated map of the course, leading results and numerous action shots of the leading riders including Joey Dunlop, Philiip McCallen and Michael Rutter.

Prancesca intends returning for her fourth TT next year, and has already confirmed that she will be bringing two more Italian riders with her, including Giorgio Cantalupo, who made a quite impressive debut in this year's Ulster Grand Prix.
