'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, Guy has raced the Isle of Man TT and finished on the podium; bike trekked through India; competed in solo 24-hour bicycles races; flown a stunt plane; broken a go-kart speed record down a French mountain and attempted to break the motorcycle land-speed record at Bonneville Salt Flats. And he s done all this around his day job as a truck mechanic.
But let Guy tell you about it himself: This book starts in a Transit, ends in a Transit, and in between I ve raced a few pushbikes, raced a few motorbikes and got a fair few stories to tell you. Spot on.
