Guy’s no glory hunter

Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

While I ap­pre­ci­ate that a lot of the mo­tor­cy­cling fra­ter­nity would love noth­ing more than see­ing Guy Martin back at the TT, the com­ments from Rob Allen (MCN Let­ters, December 7) miss the point. As many teams, jour­nal­ists, TV crews and em­ploy­ers have found, Guy pad­dles his own ca­noe. He is first and fore­most very proud of his day job and is also mo­ti­vated by more than see­ing his name in his­tory. I, for one, am more than happy to see Guy in China, rid­ing dirt bikes across a lake and cy­cling to the ends of the earth while dream­ing about his next ratchet pur­chase. If and when Guy chooses to re­turn to the TT we should just re­joice in the fact that he has done so be­cause he wants to and not be­cause he feels he has to for money or glory.
