I'm reading his autobiography at the minute.
Brilliant read, up there with any of Guy Martins books
and tough to put the book down. Got it last Sat and will
probably have it finished this weekend.

Its hard to even wrap your mind around that level of bravery and determination. You would have to wonder what's it going to take for him to walk away from the sport and call it a day, when ever that time comes, cant help but feel even if he lost the leg he'd be trying to figure a way to keep going.

For a lad who speaks like David Beckham he certainly is made of tough stuff.
Some will and determination!

The bit where he discribes himself dragging himself out of the way of race traffic after the 2016 crash shows he can certainly think straight even through tromendous pain!

I took the lazy way out and ordered the DVD. He is one determined individual. You'd learn alot from him in terms of aspirations, failures and sucesses. He's also very clever regards marketting and all that. I have always found him an engaging and entertaining guy and a real addition to the sport.

Finished it last night. I got it from the local library. Really really hope he makes it back to full fitness again for TT 2019. It will be some showdown with him, McGuinness, Michael Dunlop, Dean Harrisson, Hickman, and please God Bruce if they are all at 100%.
A lot of them with a lot to go for.
