‘It doesn’t bother me in the slight­est… now’

“I just took each race as it came,” says Ja­son Grif­fiths, who now has a mo­tor­cy­cle deal­er­ship on the Isle of Man. “I think it both­ered some other peo­ple more than me that I never won a race. It doesn’t bother me in the slight­est… now.

“I stopped racing when I was ready to stop and I’m still walk­ing round so that’s the im­por­tant thing. I re­ally en­joyed it but I’m glad I stopped when I did. It’s easy to think, ‘I’ll just do an­other year’ but I drew a line un­der it in 2006 and didn’t look back.

“I can’t re­mem­ber which TT I came clos­est to win­ning! It might even have been one where I didn’t fin­ish on the podium, a race that I felt I could have won but then broke down. But I was lucky to race against some good guys like Joey Dun­lop, and on the day the best man wins.”
