Stats & Facts from the Isle of Man TT

August 18, 2015

Any sport fan loves to see behind the scenes of their favourite sporting events and the Isle of Man TT is one of those that we are lucky enough to be a part of. We can't take much of the credit though, all we do is supply our SPORTTAPE to the awesome team at Scott Physiotherapy.

Headed up by the highly skilled Isla Scott, the Scott Physiotherapy team have been the main medical providers for the Isle of Man TT for the past few years. When Isla asked if she could use SPORTTAPE throughout the event we agreed without a second thought!

Now for those of you who love to read about stats from medical events, Isla has spent the last reserves of her energy pulling together this impressive stat sheet. It is incredible to think how many hours of hard work Isla and the team put into looking after the riders, and without a doubt they are highly grateful for it!

As you can see from this impressive stat sheet the Scott Physiotherapy team must need a massage themselves after handing out an incredible 355 massages and using over 150m of SPORTTAPE, one rider lucky enough to be treated by Isla was the ever happy Guy Martin, who in return for treatment had to provide the paddock dog with some entertainment!

We can't wait to be involved again for the 2016 Isle of Man TT and would like to say a big thank you to the Scott Physiotherapy team for providing so many behind the scenes pictures and stats!
