Tributes pour in for Manx rider Dan Kneen

Tributes are pouring in for a Manx TT racer who died during last night's qualifying session.

30-year-old Dan Kneen came off his bike at Churchtown on the first lap of the session.

The Onchan man died at the scene.

He'd made his mountain course debut at the Manx Grand Prix in 2008 and won an unprecedented three races – the Junior, Newcomers C and Ultra Lightweight MGP races.

He achieved his first TT podium in last year's Superstock Race – finishing third.

ACU Events Ltd says it wishes to pass on its deepest sympathies to Dan’s partner Leanne, his family and friends "in the road racing community and beyond".
