Mcguin­ness is still the main man at the TT

Star must have been gut­ted but kept smil­ing

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

As if motorcycling’s love for John Mcguin­ness could get any greater… the big man took time out from his re­cov­ery to make a pil­grim­age to the Isle of Man last week­end. The word leg­end just doesn’t do this man jus­tice. He must have been gut­ted not to be able to race (not to men­tion the pain he must still be in from his NW200 ac­ci­dent) and yet he made the cross­ing and even trav­elled around chat­ting to folks on a trike. And the whole time he had a mas­sive smile on his face . As for re­tire­ment, he is right to con­sider it and right not to rush into any­thing. Just like Ian Hutchin­son a few years ago, he will face a big strug­gle to get back to full rid­ing fit­ness – and as we all know, chal­lenges don’t come much big­ger than the 37.73 miles of the TT. What­ever he de­cides, we’ll all still love and re­spect him . James Robin­son, email
