John McGuinness MBE: 23 and Counting...

Season 1, Ep. 2

John McGuinness MBE joins Chris Pritchard and Steve Plater for Episode 2 of The TT Podcast.


One of the sport’s biggest-ever stars looks back on an incredible career to date, and with 99 TT race starts under his belt, he looks forward to hitting the century mark in 2022.


We get an insight into John’s family life, the superstitions he carries out before every race, and he opens up and reflects on the darker side of the sport which has claimed the lives of a number of his closest peers.


Back in the red of Honda Racing for 2022, John also talks about how the deal came about and what he expects from the new era of Fireblade.
