Anstey spurred on by TT rivalry


Anstey happy with TAS Suzuki bikes

New Zealand's Bruce Anstey says his competitive rivalry with TAS Suzuki team-mate Cameron Donald is spurring him on at TT 2009.

On Thursday the Kiwi became only the second man in TT history to average 130 mph around the famous Mountain course only for Donald to go one better.

Australian Donald set an incredible 131.457 mph average on his last lap of the session.

Anstey said: "We're pushing each other on. That rivalry definitely helps."

He added: "It's good fun to see who is the fastest. We're both delighted with the times but more importantly we are focussed on Saturday."
