‘I’m still strong in my eighteenth year of racing – my head’s still totally focused on what I want to do and that’s to ride motorbikes faster.’
John McGuinness is the most famous road racer in the world. He is one of the most successful TT riders of all time, second only to the legendary Joey Dunlop, and in 2007 he became the first man to break the 130mph-barrier on the course. He has also set lap records at the NW200, the Ulster GP and Scarborough.
But what makes the Morecambe Missile tick? How does he feel when he’s lining up on the grid? And when he’s on the podium at the TT yet again?
John McGuinness: TT Legend answers all these questions and more. The product of a close collaboration between John and acclaimed photographer Stephen Davison, this book is a portrait of the icon in his own words, illustrated by stunning images that span his career, and packed with stats and facts – an unmissable book for all road racing fans.
Stephen Davison has been a road racing fan since he attended his first race in 1974. He is the author of a string of bestselling books, including Joey Dunlop: King of the Roads, Beautiful Danger, Hard Roads and Between the Hedges. Davison has been the recipient of a number of photographic awards, including Northern Ireland Sports Photographer of the Year and Northern Ireland Press Photographer of the Year. He is joint owner of the prestigious photographic agency Pacemaker Press.
