The Big Race | [Michael Brick]

The Big Race

When a mysterious military vet lures hundreds of bikers on a ludicrously dangerous transcontinental motorcycle ride, he draws in a Sioux shaman, a British financier, and a Hollywood auteur with helicopters and private jets. But Big Jim has a far more ambitious agenda. And it will take them all to a reckoning with the heart of America. In this rollicking, true story, Michael Brick chases the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge from Arizona to the Pine Ridge Reservation, with a brief interlude in Las Vegas.

Audible Editor Reviews

Jeff Brick infuses his performance of New York Times reporter Michael Brick’s The Big Race with western grit, perfect for this expansive tale that runs the gamut from motorcycle lore, Americana, Las Vegas and the Pine Ridge Reservation. Characters in this nonfiction story about a cross-country motorcycle race are carefully voiced, while powerful descriptions evoke the western landscape with stunning clarity and intellectual charm. Listeners will want listen to The Big Race in the car, and may just pass by their driveway a couple of times, imagining themselves out on the open road with the rest of the gang.
