From the TT legend comes a story about living on the very edge.
John is best known as one of the most successful Isle of Man TT champions in history, with 23 titles to his name. He was also the first person to break through the 130mph barrier. He won the Selgrave Trophy in 2015, and a left-hand bend on the Snaefell Mountain Course has been named after him. He was given the freedom of the city of Lancaster in 2007, and still lives in Morecambe with his wife Becky and their two children.
