"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 Martin's grandfather, Voldemars, 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 dusted himself off after a dramatic crash at the Dunrod 150 Superbike race. 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.

A look in to a year of a most extraordinary mans life and in to a very different way of thinking of his life , I found it deep in places ,but humorous through out . A man that certainly puts 100 % in to the things he does . A person with good old type values .
Makes sense of a lot of what you see in the news. Blatantly honest and revealing. Funny, witty and intellectual at times.
I looking forward to see what he does next.
