From the cover: “ The maddest 12 months of my life. The journey starts with an oddball race up an American mountain and ends with me checking myself out of hospital with a broken back. Again…
As Guy’s Latvian grandfather frequently reminded him, ‘When you dead, you dead’. So before it’s all over, Guy Martin is making the most of the time he’s got. In this past year alone, he’s raced the Isle of Man TT and finished on the podium; competed in solo 24-hour bicycle races; trekked across India; commissioned the building of the largest Wall of Death the world has ever seen, then built a bike to ride on it; flown a stunt plane; broken a go-kart speed record down a French mountain and dusted himself off after a dramatic crash at the Dundrod 150 Superbike race, and not forgetting his day job as a truck fitter.
There’s been some near misses, incredible feats of endurance, fantastic sporting achievements, the odd spot of bother and one or two misadventures. But no one can tell it like Guy can, so here he is doing all the talking.
