Publisher Comments:

The Isle of Man TT—the world's most dangerous motorcycle race—as seen through the eyes of four leading racers

A life-affirming journey to the heart of the world's most dangerous race, this account 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 "sucks the rabbits out of hedges," but 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. They tell their astonishing stories in a book that provides the most rounded, intimate, behind-the-scenes account yet of the last great race. Delivering the final word on the Isle of Man TT, this book really gets to grips with an event that continually pulls unsung riders and fans back year after year to witness That Near Death Thing.
