Jessopp calls time on TT

Yeovil rider bows out after five years and two podiums

Road racer Martin Jessoppp has announced he won't be competing at the TT any more.

The Yeovil rider made his Mountain Course debut in 2014.

Since then, he's achieved seven top-ten finishes, including two podiums, which both came in the Lightweight category.

He's also lapped the course at more than 130mph.

Jessopp, who is also disbanding the Riders Motorcycles team which he ran with his Dad, says it's the right time for him to walk away.

He says he's looking forward to living a normal life with his daughter, who is excelling at kickboxing.
