Almost 300 riders have taken victory at the Isle of Man TT over the last 108 years. The all-time winners list features some of the biggest names in motorcycle racing history, including the most successful Grand Prix racer of all time, Giacomo Agostini and legends such as Geoff Duke, Mike Hailwood, Phil Read, Ron Haslam.

More recent names on the list include Steve Hislop, John McGuinness, David Jefferies and Michael Dunlop.

Remaining unchallenged at the top is the road racing hero that is Joey Dunlop, whose astonishing 26 Isle of Man TT victories place him in a class of his own.

John McGuinness is closing in on his hero, but whether he'll get there before he retires is another question all together. 

Sidecar man Dave Molyneux sits third with a total of 17 victories to his name, ahead of one of the most naturally talented racers of all time, Mike Hailwood. 

After four TT wins last year, Michael Dunlop sits joint fifth in the rankings with Phillip McCallen and Steve Hislop. With eight of Dunlop's victories from the last two years, he could signifcantly climb up the ranking at this year's TT if there's a repeat performance. 

The top four riders on the all-time win list hold their overall ranking alone, further down the field the ranks are widely shared.
