Guy Martin is one crazy dude! Damn, is his accent thick. IOW, what in the hell is Guy saying? I love his attitude towards racing and life!

"TT3D : Closer To The Edge" is a FANTASTIC movie about the the Isle of Man TT. It is a must watch movie if you love motorcycle racing!

I can't believe today is the first I've heard of this movie. It will be a goal of mine to get it this week!

The other truly insane race I believe is the famous Dakar Rally. But more specifically for the guys running it on motorcycles. Not 110% flat out like the TT, but 16 days of life on the line with thousands of things that can go wrong along the way. Like the TT I believe I read (for both events) that loss of life is typical on average each year.

This book was where I learned what Dakar is all about and found it quite shocking.
