Video: Life with John McGuinness

On the surface, John McGuinness is an unlikely modern roadracing hero. He’s not overly short, he’s not skinny, and he’s not young.

Yet, year after year, he returns to the Isle of Man TT and threatens for wins in every class he races. How does he do it? Why? This video from Honda Pro Racing talks with McPint, finding out what makes him tick, what it takes to win, and how it feels to race in an event that’s constantly underlined with fatalities.

This year, John McGuinness is teamed up with Guy Martin aboard the new Honda Fireblade, possibly returning him to a more competitive bike for the first time in a few years.
