Martin Finnegan 2007 Southern 100.Martin-Finnegan-Southern-100-2007-Tony-Goldsmith-59Martin Finnegan at Church Bends during the 2007 Southern 100 road races on the Isle of Man. By motorcycle racing photographer Tony Goldsmith.

I thought I'd take a look back at the first event I photographed as an accredited photographer.

It was 2007 at the Southern 100 and I've picked this image of the late Martin Finnegan at Church Bends.  I think the rider in the background is Paul Dobbs who sadly is also no longer with us.

Images such as this are a stark reminder of how cruel the sport we love can sometimes be.
