TT Isle of Man Ride on The Edge 2 Competitions End on a High Gear

TT Isle of Man Competitions

TT Isle of Man Ride on The Edge 2 competitions have just concluded and finished on a high gear as last month was quite intense for the players of the game.

The motorcycle sim was the arena for a race between riders of the official competition and a tournament between PlayStation®4 and PC players. Here’s a summary of the virtual competitions that were held in place of the 2020 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, which was canceled because of Covid-19.

The first of the competition that began in the first week of June, featured eight teams of official riders and players competing as a part of the TT Lock-in. The entertainment program was organized by the government of Isle of Man. Davey Todd, a consultant on TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2, won with a time of 15:44.

Another consultant of the game, Julien Toniutti had this to say,

I’m really happy I was selected for the Virtual TT 2020. It was great for many reasons. First of all, because after sessions with the developers at KT Racing in 2018 and 2019 and a press conference in 2020, the Virtual TT gave me the chance to see and experience the TT2 project from start to finish. Secondly, thanks to the Virtual TT, I achieved my best finish at the Tourist Trophy (6th place). And I must say that my teammate got the best time of everyone, which helps! Finally, with three falls suffered during my lap, it’s nice to see that I don’t have a scratch on me, which is impossible during the real Tourist Trophy. Therefore, TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2 is the best simulator for training for the real Tourist Trophy.

The second tournament was held in the second half of June from 13-29. This was reserved for players of TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2 from all over the world and featured nearly 700 participants across three rounds. By setting a record time in the two first stages, Dennis K. was the firm favorite, but he finished in third place in the final standings. This unfortunate under-performance was because of an injury suffered just a few hours before the final stage.

The final was as tight as it gets with a mere 3.4 second gap between the top two riders after 1 hour 28 minutes of racing. Samuel, a 31-year-old Spanish player and motorcyclist for 15 years, just missed out on the top spot but still achieved a remarkable second place.
