With such an incredible roll call of riders, it’s often forgotten that Clive himself was once one of the hottest prospects in racing – something he opens up with to Chris and Steve, giving somewhat of a rare insight into one of the paddock’s most beloved personalities.
The venerable statesman is followed by one of the new kids on the block – Milo Ward. A newcomer to the TT in 2022 who claimed the RST Star of Tomorrow award, Milo reflects on his first outing around the TT Mountain Course, the preparations he made, and how he was keen to ensure he came to the TT at the right time in his career.
Mick Grant, the 7-time TT winner from a golden era in motorcycle racing.

Grand Prix, World Superbikes, British Superbikes, and the TT – Rob McElnea has done them all and has plenty to talk about on The TT Podcast. And while his TT career was far shorter than the likes of Clive and John, he certainly showed his class, winning 3 races in as many appearances.
In an extended chat on The TT Podcast, Rob ‘Mac’ also talks of the Grand Prix years, racing with the likes of Eddie Lawson, Wayne Gardner, Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz, and Niall Mackenzie.
Pete Founds then brings listeners back to the future for more sidecar discussions ahead of the 2023 Isle of Man TT Races.
