Kiwi motorcyclist Bruce Anstey has won the first race in the Supersport category of the famous Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy), his ninth win at the event in 10 years.

Anstey, whose first win at the 105-year-old race came in 2002, won this year's first race by just 0.77 seconds over Australian Cameron Donald.

The first Superbike race was won by TT legend John McGuinness who recorded his 19th win in Ireland with Donald coming in second and Anstey third.

The results mean Anstey is now in second place in the TT Championship with 54 points, followed by Donald on 46 and trailing McGuinness on 63.

Anstey has had great success at the historic motorbike event and is seventh-equal for all time wins with nine.

The second Supersport and Superbike races will be held on June 6 with the final senior race to conclude the event on June 8.
