  1. Farewell

    And that brings an end to this live page covering the Senior TT. Thanks for all of your company, that's the racing done on the island for another year.

    Why not read the race report here?

  2. 'I am really happy'

    Peter Hickman

    Race winner Peter Hickman: "I knew Dean was fast and we expected Michael to be there as well. I've always been strong up on the mountain all week, I came into my own at that but the gap kept growing and I would pull it back.

    "I figured if I could gain a couple of seconds in the first sectors I might be able to pull it in if I was within five or six seconds and that's what happened. I am really happy, obviously.

    "That's two race wins this week, including the big one. We have given people a lot of work to do this week rewriting the record books."

  3. Magic Michael

    He may not have got his hands on the Senior TT, but Michael Dunlop leaves the 2018 event third in the all-time victory list after three wins this year.

    John McGuinness has 23, with uncle Joey Dunlop leading the way with 26 wins.

  4. 'No excuses'

    Dean Harrison, 2nd place: "Everything was going really well, I got stuck behind a few backmarkers but I can't use that as an excuse. I take it on the chin, I'm not disappointed, I'm happy. I have got the pace to run at the front, I am over the moon.

    "Pete is a quality rider, I knew I wasn't going to clear off. I wondered where Michael Dunlop was, I thought he would bring it to the table today."

  5. 'The pace was hot'

    Conor Cummins, 3rd place: "The pace was hot today but I wasn't surprised. I was focused on putting in a clean six laps together. I got going and my pit stops were amazing.

    "I'm well happy, we'll come back next year and work at it again."

  6. Post update

    Champagne in the eyes, relief in their heads. The riders are now down and we'll soon have the news conference. I'll bring you a few quotes before we shut this page down.

  7. Post update

    Peter Hickman will be getting his hands on this any moment now.

  8. Post update

    The riders are now up on the podium which overlooks the start/finish line of course. What an end to a brilliant week of racing.

  9. Great shot

  10. Post update

    I wonder what happened with Michael Dunlop today? He did say in his pre-race interview that he had changed a lot of things on the bike. I can only guess that those changes had the opposite affect as he was never in contention for the win.

  11. Post update

    I've given up thinking that these riders and bikes have lapped the old course as fast as is physically posible.

    It's 11 years (I think) since the 130mph barrier was breached. At this rate they'll soon be pushing 140...

  12. This is how it feels

    To lap at 135mph...

  13. Catching our breath

    BBC Sport's Richard Petrie at the TT Grandstand: "Everyone at the grandstand and around the circuit is catching their breath after that sensational, simply sensational, climax to the Senior TT race.

    "Everyone who was fortunate enough to be here on the Isle of Man has witnessed another landmark in motorcycling history today - the first-ever 135mph lap and one of the greatest battles ever seen around the Mountain Course.

    "Hats off to both Peter Hickman and Dean Harrison. What an exhibition of high speed road racing they have put on today. Truly memorable.

    "If you have any interest in motorsport and that didn't get your pulse racing and the adrenaline flowing then it is something very strange. Motorcycle racing in its rawest form at breathtaking speed."

    Miranda Lane: Mega congratulations to Dean Harrison And what a fantastic Senior Race --- thrilling and changing all the way....right down to the line

  16. Post update

    Conor Cummins: "Two big bike podiums in a week, that will do me. I'm well happy. I had to have a word with myself after a poor start so I'm happy with third. I'm not surprised that the lap record has gone again, everyone's so strong and solid."

  17. Post update

    Dean Harrison: "I'm over the moon, disappointing on the last lap to get stuck between so many slow riders. I lost four seconds from Sulby Bridge onto Ramsey and I lost the race by two.

    "But fair play to everyone on the podium. I can't ask for much more, what more could I do? I had the lead all race and got held back. I take the rough with the smooth and I'm just happy to be here."

  18. 'I rode as hard as I could'

    Race winner Peter Hickman: "What can I say? Wow! What a tough race. Dean was absolutely on it, he was leading the whole race. I could gain over the mountain but he was pushing the first two sectors.

    "What an awesome end. Mega. I rode as hard as I could, I knew it would come down to the last half a lap."
