The 2013 Senior win was a real milestone, my twentieth TT win. I have stood on more podiums on the Island than anyone else now. I fully accept that one day I won't be at the pointy end but there is still a big part of me that's determined to win.' John McGuiness In this new edition of the bestselling book, legendary TT rider John McGuinness tells his story in his own words, right up to and including the 2014 season. Featuring over 150 of Stephen Davison's stunning photographs, the book charts every part of McGuinness's TT career, from his first trips to the island as a teenager when he stowed away on the ferry from Heysham on his BMX bike, to the heady days when he stood along side his childhood hero Joey Dunlop on the podium, and his subsequent wins and lap records.
