'I was never going to sleep in and take it easy, there were worms to catch.'

In August 2015 Guy Martin crashed out of the lead of an Ulster Grand Prix superbike race held on the world's fastest racetrack. He had invasive surgery to bolt his broken spine and hand back together, and within days he decided he needed some time away from road racing. But he wasn't about to take it easy ...

In his latest book, Worms to Catch, discover how Britain's favourite daredevil fills his time when road racing is taken out of the equation.

He set about breaking records on the world's biggest Wall of Death, cycling 2,745 miles across the length of the United States (while sleeping rough), attempting to be the fastest person ever on two wheels and travelling to Latvia to investigate his family's roots.

There's some thrilling racing too, including wild Harley choppers on dirt and turbo-charged Transit vans through the Nevada desert. And there's the day job to get back to in North Lincolnshire - the truck yard and the butty van.

Worms To Catch is the story of Guy's quiet life in 2016. Guy Martin has done more in one year than most people do in a lifetime, and with his gift for story-telling, he takes you with him to the outer limits of human endurance, and on a dizzying adrenalin high, all in a day's work.

Except for one summer spent sleeping inside a truck in a concrete yard in Northern Ireland, Guy Martin has lived within 20 miles of the Grimsby hospital he was born in, on the 4th November 1981.

But that hasn't stopped the professional truck mechanic from winning multiple international road races, plus scoring fifteen Isle of Man TT podiums. Nor has it prevented him from becoming a regular face on Channel 4, presenting critically acclaimed documentaries and travelogues, and his popular returning series Speed with Guy Martin.

Did we mention he's also the author of two phenomenal number-one bestselling memoirs. Not bad for a truck fitter.
