‘I’m forty now, stronger than ever, and I’m still winning races. Joey had won fourteen by the time he was my age, but age is just a number as he proved when he won three TTs when he was forty-eight. I’ve still got my health and the desire to win – it’s not over yet.’
In this unmissable new book, legendary TT rider John McGuinness tells his own story in his own words for the first time. Featuring over 150 of Stephen Davison’s stunning photographs, the book charts every part of McGuinness’s TT career, from his first trips to the Island as a teenager when he stowed away on the ferry from Heysham on his BMX bike, to the heady days when he stood alongside his childhood hero Joey Dunlop on the podium, and his subsequent wins and lap records.
John McGuinness: TT Legend is a unique opportunity to share in the highs and lows of McGuinness’s recordbreaking career, to discover the behind-the-scenes story of the much-loved Morecambe Missile and to experience the magic and excitement of the sport in the company of the world’s most famous road racer.
