And of course we’ve got the lowdown on Guy Martin’s move to the Honda racing team to tackle his most serious attempt on the TT of his career
The whole point of a motorcycle racing magazine is for fans to discover what the people who do such incredible things on bikes are all about, and you'll find much of that in this issue. We take a look into Michael Dunlop’s early years and it is (in our opinion) the best thing we’ve ever published. In fact there are dozens of great pictures in this issue. A personal favourite is Cal Crutchlow and Jack Miller doing a Morecambe and Wise, but I wouldn’t blame you for preferring Guy Martin destroying a GSX-R600, Dan Linfoot almost crashing a Fireblade or Chippy Wood’s grasstrack action...
