‘Then I was there: the smells, the noise and the speed were all there for me to take in. It was like a massive injection in my head. I knew I was going to be a TT rider. I didn’t know how or what I was going to have to do to achieve this, and I knew my dad wasn’t going to be keen. Everyone around me knew the dangers, but I knew I had to do it.’
John McGuinness is one of the all-time giants of road racing. With 23 TT titles under his belt, he is a hero in the sport, but has also been billed as the most versatile rider in the world.
