During Saturday's RST Superbike TT Race at the Isle of Man, Dean Harrison became the first rider to join the 134-mph club, which I guess means he started the club. From a standing start at the first lap of the race, Harrison averaged 134.432 mph, lapping the 37.73-mile course in 16:50.384. The TT just put up an on-board clip from Harrison's run, and, we're pretty speechless.
Harrison didn't end up winning the race, on the fourth and final lap. Michael Dunlop ended up taking victory, and on his way, ran the second fastest lap of the race, a 132.943 mph.
The amazing thing about Harrison's lap is that he only became the first person in Isle of Man TT history to lap the course in under 17:00 minutes during qualifying last week. Beating that by nearly 10 seconds defies belief.
Harrison is not the only member of the 134-mph club, though. In today's RL360 Superstock TT, Peter Hickman managed a 134.403 mph lap on his way to victory.
