Race organisers have confirmed that a rider died during this afternoon’s delayed Supersport TT 1 race.

Bob Price, 65, from Stroud came off his Yamaha at Ballaugh Bridge on lap three of the four lap race.

A car body repair shop owner, he was an experienced road racer who first competed at the TT Races in 1992 and competed regularly in the Manx Grand Prix as a Classic racer.

Highlights of his Mountain Course career included 3rd place in the MGP Junior Classic in 2002 and runner up position in the same year in the Senior Classic. He also achieved third place in the 2004 Junior Classic MGP and took part in last year's inaugural Classic TT Races.

Price was returning to the TT this year for the first time since 2006.

Race organisers, ACU Events Ltd extended their condolences to his family and friends.

Investigations are on-going.
