The film features expert analysis from Shane Byrne, Colin Edwards, Leon Haslam, Ron Haslam. Also featured are Peter Hickman and Freddie Spencer.

Accompany the trailer on YouTube, the makes of the film say:

“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.”

This is definitely one to watch!
