A Cotic Soul is in issue 96, as one of I.O.M. TT and now TV star Guy Martin favorite posessions in the regular Gearbox feature.
He is currently 250 miles a week in training for the 120 mile 24,000 feet climb in the one day in the Salzkammergut Trophy, Austria.
Having seen his TV series, The Boat That Guy Built, he seems to be the natural replacement for the late, great, Fred Dibnah, his relative youth, 29 and his easy going but enthusiastic manner will appeal to many?

A great character on TV, also saw him doing the MTB test on the Gadget Show where he picked the Orange five over a 6.5K trek :)

I like his style, very down to earth, a get things done attitude and appreciative of other peoples skills. seems pretty talented too, in a few walks of life.

Regarding the boat that guy built, it wasn't a bad show but it didn't go into enough depth for me. It all seemed to have been edited into quite superficial bite size chunks that failed to show the full processes involved in each of the items they were looking at.

Also honestly his habbit of calling the other chap "Boss" etc. It seemed like if you took any 5 minute segment of the show the word Boss or similar would be used over a dozen times..for some reason this REALLY annoyed me and by the end of the first episode it made me want to hurl claw hammers at kittens.

Bring back Fred Dibnah, all is forgiven!
