Description

At 23, James Toseland was the youngest ever winner of the World Superbike Championship and with more racing experience than riders twice his age, has overtaken previous champions Carl Fogarty and Neil Hodgson to become the next biking superstar. Toseland's success has been driven by a lifetime of tragedy. Using racing as a release, he became afearless daredevil and had moved his way up through the ranks of BritishSuperbikes 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. This is a story of genius, tragedy and James' overwhelming will to succeed.show more

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.show more
