When it comes to the Isle of Man TT, near misses are the name of the game.

However, even by TT standards, this one’s up there.

Caught on racer Horst Seiger’s on-board camera, it shows Jamie Cowton coming off his bike and colliding with barriers at the side of the road.

Soon after, it looks like a banner comes perilously close to the front wheel of Seiger’s bike.

He comes fractionally close to hitting Seiger’s speeding bike.

Like we said, almost too close to imagine. We daren’t think what the outcome would have been had the bike been travelling ever so slightly slower – or Cowton sliding faster.

Watch the incident in full below.
