A moving description of an average motorcyclist's dream of participating in the world's greatest motorcycle race. For 100 years, the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy races have been the world's most dangerous organized sporting event. Mark Gardiner was just another one of the 30,000 fans who attended the annual spectacle. Except that he went home, quit his job, and sold everything he owned. He moved to the Island determined to race in the TT himself. If you're a dreamer, the lesson in this book is that the pursuit of any worthwhile goal involves risks, rewards and regrets. If you're not a dreamer, the lesson is more important: the deepest regrets are always over risks not taken.
