I could not believe they named the show that! He needs to find 100 more mph before they start making claims like that.

As ever, TV companies never let the facts get in the way of a catchy title. Guess the thing to note is that the bike record attempt is just one of a whole list of challenges lined up for him. Right now on UK TV he is Our Man in China. Shame they didn't come up with something more appropriate though.

Lets not forget that Valerie Thompson went 304+ mph this year which also makes her faster than the Triumph attempt.

And Jon, Boris, Don, Dan, Dave and Jim?

I like to think the original title was something like Guy Martin: The Story of his 2016 Attempt to Become The Fastest Man on Two Wheels, and someone in the TV production company decided that was too long.  grin
