@Andy Are you going again this year? I seem to remember something to with problems getting time from work/ medical issues but maybe I made that up. :smiley:

*Sebastian, Lance is faster than you... do you understand?*


*I married Miss Right. Just didn't know her first name was Always

Medical issues kept me from the Manx last year but may play a role in going, or not.
Following the repairs on my shoulder I was submitted for a medical report by my local job agency in regards to my bodies condition and whether I could and should continue to work as a plumber. The medical report stated no and therefore I was advised to file occupational retraining with the German Pension Insurance. To make a long nervy story short, they denied and the job agency took over funding. Now it looks like I'll take up occupational retraining towards an IT system operator from February, 18. The problem though is that the retraining company only has got fixed holidays and the TT doesn't fall into these fixed dates. The lady at the company though had hinted to me that there may be possibilities to break into the tight two year schedule if my job agent plays game. It'll take some more negotiations I guess, but I'm lightly positive that I can go. And I better do because if not my on hold flights from last years Manx GP, my big chance for TT, will wear off as well.
Can't say for sure whether I go but I'll learn in the next couple of days :bye:

Anyone in the US know what channel to catch this on?
It used to be the Velocity channel, but that disappeared in '15 or '16. This is the one TT event I really enjoy but I have not been able to watch it legally for years.

If you've got a firetv get ahold of mobdro app and install it. ITV4 still does the daily reviews and it is in mobdro. It should be easy this way ;)
