I remember seeing some wicked IOM pics in one of those brittish mags. Probably the same guy you are talking about above, but the guy is leaning into a turn and literally sliding his shoulder along the wall the same way a racer would slide a knee on the ground.
Very impressive stuff.

I saw those pics also, he had paint on his helmet and jacket. IMO these races add another dimension to the game. There's one part on the skerries where the riders are flying downhill and hitting turns at the same time.

I love those pictures, one of my favorites and its an oldie is where a guy is exiting a corner and laying rubber on both the street and the bottom edge of the concrete wall. If anyone has it or knows where it is I would be very appreciative.
