McCoy freezes his nuts off to get to Cheltenham is the headlines that most racing punters will love to hear as the punters friend is doing everything in his power to make it to the festival which starts on the 11th of March. What top sports people have to go through to make it onto the playing field can be quite incredible but jockeys not only have to freeze to get their bones in shape after injury, they have to sweat to get their weight down to a level which allows them to ride certain horses in handicaps.
The sight of Tony McCoy throwing some boxing shapes to keep warm in his deep freeze box was a sight to behold in an effort to get back from is horrendous fall at Warwick last months. Minus 130C is what he having to endure all with the aim of getting back into the saddle in time for the Cheltenham festival where he is 6/1 to be the top jockey at the festival.
We expect nothing less from the champion jockey and when we see his dedication it is obvious why he has been at the top of his game for so long.
