Made on the Isle of Man, mostly in the pub, the best bike racing magazine on earth has stunning pictures from arguably the best TT yet and a bit of a different take on the most terrifying road race on earth.
This was a year of heroic fight-backs, with McPint and Hutchy defying the odds in spectacular fashion. We talk to both as well as meeting TT Rider Liaison Officers Milky Quayle and Johnny Barton. We ponder the Padgett secret: Just how does the Batley team keep on winning?
While we were there, Carl Fogarty invited us to pop round to watch some racing from his beer garden and our pet TT racer, MCN’s Road Tester Adam Child, explains how he raced in the Lightweight TT - after a flying visit to Nobles. Meanwhile, four WSB heroes attack the TT course, James Hillier sneaks a ride on the H2R and Manxman and World Enduro champ David 'Knighter' Knight takes us off road to find the best places to watch the event.
As well as all the action from this year’s TT, we find out how after dabbling with a WSB return, Troy Bayliss is having a go at US flat track. It’s not going to plan.
We visit the craziest MotoGP of the year at Mugello in Italy, where fans worship Valentino Rossi, go without sleep for 36 hours and rev engines to destruction for a laugh. We find out from Sam Lowes and two fellow headcases how to get ahead in Moto2 and decide if either French 15-year old Fabio Quartararo or Maverick Vinales could be the next Marquez GP legend Kevin Schwantz tells us what he's learned since he stopped racing and Chris Walker, BSB's old giffer advises his upstart team mate Danny Buchan.
