James Toseland, youngest ever World Superbike Champion at just 23 years old, has rocketed into a league of biking legends, following in the footsteps of Carl Fogarty, Troy Bayliss and Neil Hodgson.

Toseland's success has been driven by a lifetime of tragedy. Using racing as a release, he became a fearless daredevil and had moved his way up through the ranks of British Superbikes by the time he was sixteen.

But there was even more turmoil to come - a career of dramatic crashes and a collision in Monza, Italy, which left James seriously injured and his Honda team-mate dead.

Winning his second Superbike championship in 2007, and about to make the move to MotoGP for 2008, James' story is one of genius, tragedy and an overwhelming will to succeed.

Back cover copy

The youngest ever World Superbike Champion at 23, James Toseland rocketed into a league of biking legends. Now, after seven success-filled years in Superbikes, James is ready to make the leap into MotoGP.

On the bike, James's daredevil attitude has led to tremendous success and some horrific crashes in equal measure. Off the bike, James has overcome family tragedy, trained as a classical pianist, performed as a member of the aptly named band Crash, and was crowned Cosmopolitan centrefold of the year.

But racing is, and will always be, his overriding passion.

James's adrenalin-fuelled tale is a story of genius, courage and an overwhelming desire to win.
