John Blake Books to publish the autobiography of Ian Hutchinson

John Blake Publishing Ltd. are pleased to announce the upcoming publication of Ian Hutchinson's autobiography, Hutchy: Miracle Man. 

A road racer to the core, Ian Hutchinson has enjoyed spectacular success at the Isle of Man TT, the North West 200 and the Ulster Grand Prix, but his own story goes far beyond even those triumphs.

In the summer of 2010, Hutchy set the record for the most wins in a single Isle of Man TT festival – five in all. Then disaster struck.

At a British Supersport round in September that year, he fell and was struck by another rider, breaking his left leg so badly that at one stage it was feared he might lose it. After a long period of recovery, he unbelievably fractured the same leg in 2012.

Yet not even these disasters could keep the Yorkshireman from racing, and he returned to win the Macau Grand Prix in 2013 and, even more remarkably, secured three wins at the Isle of Man TT in 2015 after more than thirty operations on his leg. 

A brilliant rider and a kind, modest, and unassuming man, Hutchy is hugely popular with TT fans around the world and his incredibly comeback story is a must-read. The TT itself gets over four and a half million viewers repeatedly.   

The book will be published in October 2016, an can be preordered here.
