For this episode of The TT Podcast, it’s Part Two of rider and presenter Steve Plater’s time on the other side of an interview with Chris Pritchard.
After discussing his journey to the TT in part one, the duo finally get into the multi-TT winner’s time at the event itself, including his quick rise to the top of the podium. The retired racer also discusses his Senior win in 2009 and the immense concentration that is required to get round the Mountain Course at all, let alone at a winning pace.
They also get into the remarkable story of how a broken neck went unnoticed for a week after his infamous crash at the North West 200 that ended his TT career, and how he found out about it whilst buying a TV.
Alongside his achievements on the course, Steve has become one of the most successful pundits going and he talks of the privilege it is to have been on the TT’s coverage for over a decade, including his time on the TT Podcast itself.
