About the Book: 

Updated to include an afterword 

The Isle of Man TT is a throwback to a maverick era that existed before PR platitudes and PC attitudes.  William Hill-shortlisted author Rick Broadbent gets inside the helmets of four leading motorcycle racers as they battle fear, fire and family tragedy for a gritty sort of glory. 

Guy Martin is a tea-drinking truck mechanic and TV eccentric who must now deal with the flipside of fame; Conor Cummins is the local hero facing a race against time as he battles depression and a broken body after falling down the Mountain; John McGuinness is the living legend fending off the ravages of middle-age for one last hurrah; and Michael Dunlop is the wild child living with one of the most remarkable legacies in sport.
