James Hillier is back for Part Two of his conversation with Chris Pritchard and Steve Plater on the TT Podcast.
Despite wanting to forget about it at the time, the lightweight TT winner gets into his infamous wobble at Ballagarey, why his first thought after was about Ian Hutchinson and what he learned about the rider’s responsibility to look after their bike.
A man with BSB experience in his story alongside TT success, Hillier discusses the difference between road and track racing and why the gap between how you ride the different disciplines is closing thanks to the styles of racers like Peter Hickman and Dean Harrison.
The family man also talks about his hesitance with the idea of his children following in his racing footsteps, or tire marks, and how his family influences what he wants to achieve with his life.
Next week, Chris and Steve are talking to a man who doesn’t just race around the Isle of Man but also calls it home, Conor Cummins.
