Molyneux & Sayle take tt podium
Dave Molyneux and passenger Dan Sayle took an impressive runner-up finish in today's Sure Mobile Sidecar race two at the 2008 Isle of Man TT races. Following the disappointment of a 'DNF' earlier in the week, Team Molyneux Suzuki were back at the sharp end once more, battling with rivals Nick Crowe and Mark Cox for the three lap race this afternoon.Despite not being able to take the win, Molyneux and Sayle fought hard from the start on their GSX-R600 powered outfit, leading the race early-on before being passed on lap two. However, Molyneux wasn't ready to give up, and stalked Crowe and Cox right to the flag, finishing just ten seconds behind to give Dave his first ever Suzuki powered podium in second place.
Thirteen-times TT winner Molyneux commented, "Second was the best I could do today but I had to make it a bit interesting and so stayed with Nick to the flag. Obviously the first race didn't go to plan this week, but having a completely new package was likely to cause a few gremlins. Overall though, I'm happy with what we've achieved today."
