Isle of Man TT Icons

Want an inside look into 17-time Ilse of Man TT winner John McGuinness? The modern “King of the Mountain” was recently interviewed by that some folks at Alpinestars, one of the Morecambe rider’s sponsor.

In this Astars video, the Honda TT Legends pilot John McGuinness talks memories of his first motorcycle, his love of Evel Knievel and his first Isle of Man TT.

McGuinness, who holds the outright IOMTT lap record (2009) with a 131.578 mph around the 37.73-mile Mountain Course, took the most wins this year after dominating the Senior TT and Dainese 6-Lap Superbike races.

McGuinness now has 17 victories; the only IOMTT pilot with more is the legendary Joey Dunlop with 26.
