From the web page to Guy Martin:
Fifth gear pinned and the thick end of 180 mph. Eyes focused on every minute detail of road ahead. Through villages, skimming kerbs – past lamp posts, stone walls and trees. Jumping for 30 metres or more, sucking rabbits from hedges. World class road racing’s a constant battle with a 210 bhp superbike that just wants to go in a straight line. This is what Guy does for fun.
Racing’s a buzz, not a job. But the adrenaline-fix passion doesn’t stop there. It also extends into the territory of lung-bursting, leg-burning mountain bike endurance events and vicious downhill races – like Mega Avalanche and Fort William. If it’s not a challenge to life, limb and sanity, then he’s just not interested.
