When You Dead, You Dead

As Guys Latvian grandfather frequently reminded him, When you dead, you dead. So before its all over, Guy Martin is making the most of the time hes got. In this past year alone, hes raced the Isle of Man TT and finished on the podium; competed in solo 24-hour bicycle races; trekked across India; commissioned the building of the largest Wall of Death the world has ever seen, then built a bike to ride on it; flown a stunt plane; broken a go-kart speed record down a French mountain and dusted himself off after a dramatic crash at the Dundrod 150 Superbike race, and not forgetting his day job as a truck fitter. Theres been some near misses, incredible feats of endurance, fantastic sporting achievements, the odd spot of bother and one or two misadventures. But no one can tell it like Guy can, so here he is doing all the talking.

Guy Martin (born November 4 1981 in Kirmington, England) is a British motorcycle racer.

Early career

Martin decided to follow his father Ian's footsteps by racing motorcycles, however he lost his English competition license after a disagreement with race officials Fact|date=September 2008 and subsequently moved to Ireland to join the Uel Duncan Racing team.

AIM Yamaha

In 2006 Martin raced for Alistair Flanagans AIM Yamaha race team. His first race for the team was the 2005 Macau GP. During the 2006 season Martin was allowed to race on the English circuits again, taking part in some British Supersport championship races. He also participatd in the 3 Scarborough racing events at Olivers Mount - the Ian Watson Spring National, the Cock o' the North and the Gold Cup meeting in which he won the prestigious Gold Cup equaling Geoff Dukes record of 4 in a row.Fact|date=September 2008 The International road race meetings had mixed results the North West 200 never went particularly well, The Isle of Man TT looked promising but problems soon led to it being another disappointment though at the final international of the year, the Ulster Grand Prix, Martin took 4 race wins and a 2nd making him the man of the meeting.

Hydrex Honda

Hydrex Honda were the team that secured Martin's signature for the 2007 season. In the early season he took part in British Superbike and Supersport rounds to prepare for the road racing season. The first major international of the year was the North West 200 in which Martin finished with an 8th, a 4th, two 3rds and a 2nd. In the CP Hire Superstock race after a bad start Martin finished 3rd. The Isle of Man TT was the next major race on the calendar and Martin got a 3rd, two 2nds and a DNF after running out of fuel with less than 3 miles to go until his first pit stop. Martin continued to race on the English scene and then he regained his Cock o' the North title at the Scarborough circuit before going to Ireland for the Kells Road Races in which he took one race win. This was preparation for the Ulster Grand Prix which was delayed for two hours due to bad weather and in the first race Martin brought home a 5th position, in race 2 a win, and in the superbike race, which was shortened due to weather, a 2nd. After this red flag the days racing was cancelled due to bad weather and that meant for the 2nd year in a row Martin was the man of the meeting. The Scarborough Gold Cup meeting ended with him winning all the races on the final day including the Gold Cup; Martin has won 6 Gold Cups in a row, a new record, and he also has the lap record for the 1000cc bikes at Scarborough with a time of 1:45.3


On Tuesday 4 December Martin announced that he would be racing with Hydrex Honda for the 2008 season. The team introduced a new sponsor, Bike Animal, a motorcycle news website.
