Description: The Isle of Man TT - the world's most dangerous race - as seen through the eyes of four leading racers.
Synopsis: If there's one motorcycle race that deserves a quality hardback, it's the Isle of Man TT. Commonly seen as the world's most dangerous race, Rick Broadbent gets behind the scenes and into the helmets of four leading racers over the course of two seasons -- 2010 and 2011 -- following the riders through the numerous vicissitudes of an average season. Ian Hutchinson is as high as they come following his clean-up at the 2010 TT; a fortnight later his leg is being rebuilt after a fellow rider rode over it and Hutchinson has to plead the case for not amputating ...Conor Cummins is back after battling depression following a serious injury; Guy Martin was on the same hospital after breaking his back, but is now a BBC TV presenter; Bridgit Dobbs is the widow of Paul, who died in the 2010 race, and talks movingly on revisiting the race for the first time since her husband's death ...Rick Broadbent's That Near Death Thing is the final word on the Isle of Man TT.
