Triumph Win at the TT

Triumph got their first win since 2003 at the Isle of Man TT for Mr. Gary Johnson on a Supersport Daytona 675R! It was a serious feat beating out the likes of Michal Dunlop!!!

That's pretty good news. They must be so happy to have won their first race as a team. Couldn't really ask for a better result than that. Now what are the odds that Triumph can keep up the good work and not make this a one-off win?

now its not their first win as a team, the bikes were from Smiths Triumph Racing a British Supersport Team, part of the British Superbike Championship. They're actually leading the championship It was just the first time a Triumph has been brought to IOM since 2003. Gary Johnson rode her home, so its not either of their first rodeos

They probably would of won Supersport Race 2 as well if not for Gary breaking his collar bone in the Superstock race! That Triumph was a FAST bike...

he had to head back to hospital just a couple days after the TT ended. Nothing serious, but his collarbone required more than just a sling so hes got the full neck brace look now...
