The Isle of Man TT is like no other event on Earth. It takes total commitment and years of hard work to learn the course well enough to challenge for a win.
John McGuinness, the most senior of Honda TT Legends riders has won the race more times than any other living rider. In 2012 he returned to the Mountain Course looking to add to his tally of 17 wins.
Every year more young riders like Conor Cummins, Michael Dunlop, Guy Martin and John's own team mates Simon Andrews and Cameron Donald are snapping at his heels looking to add a TT win to their own score.
Like the North West 200 the Isle of Man TT course is fast and dangerous with little room for error - as Simon finds out.
