The World's Greatest Motorcycle Racer.
He is the greatest motor racer alive; the winner of every championship in motorbike racing.
Winner of a staggering and unsurpassed thirty-eight Grand Prix races before the age of 23, ranking in the top three places at the World Championships for the last nine years, and accruing six World Championship titles so far, Valentino Rossi is arguably the greatest motorcyclist we have ever seen, proving that man, rather than machine, wins titles. Hugely talented and massively driven, Rossi is also quite simply an entertainer; his madcap victory laps, erratic hairstyles, and mischievous post-race antics are as legendary as his on-track prowess. In fact, the only predictable thing about Rossi is the excellence of his racing performances.
In this autobiography, Rossi tells of a youth spent indulging his love of speed and racing under the formative, influential gaze of his father; talking about his career, from his Grand Prix debut in 1996 and his rapid progression through 125 class to MotoGP, Rossi explains the motivation behind his controversial move to underdogs Yamaha and his continuing rivalry with Max Biaggi. Rossi also speaks of his life away from the track, his family, his relationships and the strains of coping with international fame. The child-like exuberance, wicked humour and natural frankness so characteristic of Rossi are here translated to the page.
