As part of the 2012 Olympic celebrations the Olympic torch arrived in the Isle of Man on Saturday, June 2. KTM's David Knight was on hand to guide it through its journey.
Marking day 15 of the Torch Relay across Britain, the iconic flame arrived on the Isle of Man to coincide with the first day of racing at the TT Races. After a short trip around the local athletics stadium in Douglas, Knight was the next recipient of the iconic flame at approximately 10.30am.
Riding as a pillion passenger on the back of a motorcycle that was ridden by former TT winner Richard 'Milky' Quayle, Knight carried the torch on closed roads from Quarter Bridge to Braddan. He then handed the torch over as it carried on to complete the rest of its journey around the island before being flown to Northern Ireland.
