Speed is My Need strips bare the euphoria of speed on two

wheels. Injury and death constantly lurk around the next

corner when a misjudged twist of the throttle means that

the next time you put your helmet on, could be your last.


The Isle of Man TT is notorious for ending lives and careers.

Race tracks were never built for the increased performance

of today’s race bikes - so why do riders risk life and limb in

their quest to go ever-faster?


Speed is My Need uncovers how sports psychologists and

surgical experts across Europe are helping racers to rebuild

their minds and bodies in order to race on the edge

of oblivion.


With access to heroic racing footage, Speed is My Need is a

pulsating, edge of the seat ride into the strategic minds

and courageous hearts of these two-wheeled gladiators.
