Santiago Herrero/Ossa 250/Isle of Man/1970
“The Spanish Flyer”
Herrero finished 3rd in the 1969 Isle of Man TT, and for the 1970 season he was ready to win the “race of races”, as he considered it, for him “the Isle of Man TT it’s like a championship itself”. Sadly, he died at the 13th Milestone, Westwood Corner, when he was running in 3rd position. He was 27, and already a legend.
