The world's most dangeous motorcycle race has taken its 21st victim:

"ACU Events Ltd regrets to announce that Japanese rider Yoshinari Matsushita, 43, was killed during the qualifying session at the 2013 Isle of Man TT Races in an incident at Ballacrye in the north of the island. The session was immediately red flagged following the accident."

Matsushita had been riding Isle of Man since 2009, and had just been entered into this year's event. Here's his narrated course guide for the 2010 race.
