At the time I took this photo, I had no idea it would be resurfaced across the net 1000’s of times.
This is Michael ‘Nibbo’ Niblett.
The Hinckley-based road racer ended his TT career in a dramatic PokerStars Senior TT in 2013.
Michael chased his dream. To ride the TT and to achieve a 120mph lap. This image is Michael’s very last lap at the iconic Joey’s on the mountain, on the way to his best-ever and first lap over the iconic 120mph barrier, achieving 120.256mph.
We gave Nibbo a copy and bless him, he signed one for me too.
“I did what I set out to achieve and I can’t think of a better time to hang up my racing leathers,” says Niblett
