MCN SPORT: 25 GREATEST TTs EVER!

The latest issue of MCN Sport features the 25 greatest TT races ever, from Mike Hailwood’s astonishing comeback in 1978 - to another veteran racer, Michael Rutter, achieving a similar feat in the 2017 Lightweight event - and everything in between.

We celebrate the greatest TT rider that ever lived, the legendary Joey Dunlop and his naturally talented but mysterious nephew Michael, who continues to ensure the Dunlop name dominates the road racing scene.

The 23-time winner John McGuinness explains his decision to leave Honda for Norton and we look back at the phenomenal talent of much-loved Steve ‘Hizzy’ Hislop and that epic battle with Foggy in the 1992 Senior race.

The ‘bionic man’ Ian Hutchinson has suffered some horrific injuries in his time as a motorcycle racer. Here he explains how he came back to take three incredible class wins in the 2015 TT races.

The first TT took place in 1907 and was part motocross, part road race, part endurance and part crowd avoidance competition with bikes that were barely more than bicycles with engines  – we look back to where it all began and see some rare shots of the first ever Isle of Man TT course. Plus McPint gives us a high-speed tour around the current incarnation of the famous mountain course.

MCN Sport Season Review 2016

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...
