‘Totally re-charged’ John McGuinness will be back by popular demand at LlanBikeFest 2018, meeting fans, signing books, doing interviews and judging bikes! Despite being chair-bound and battling pain at LlanBikeFest 2017 from horrific injuries he sustained when he crashed at the North West 200 in Northern Ireland in May, John says he ‘had such a good time’ at the Festival that he is raring to return.

“I will definitely be at LlanBikeFest in August,” he said. “It’s a weekend of fun and a great family affair.  I feel completely re-charged. Everything feels good – but it’s been a long journey. Hopefully I will be in better shape next year and there is no reason I can’t bring a few more of my bike collection with me and just enjoy it.” .

LlanBikeFest co-founder John Hutchinson said: “John’s courage at this year’s festival was amazing. He worked so hard to talk with fans and well-wishers that we virtually had to drag him away to take breaks occasionally. We are absolutely delighted he will be fit enough to enjoy even more of the event this year.

“As John said, LlanBikeFest is a great weekend for families as well as bike enthusiasts, with free entry for accompanied children aged 16 and under,  and lots to see and do –  hundreds of motorcycles of every type on show, spectacular riding displays, birds of prey, rides and children’s’ entertainments, plus a great line-up of bands both days.”
