Publisher's Summary

Michael Dunlop is quite simply the greatest road racer on the planet. Brother of William, also an accomplished rider, son of the late Robert and nephew of the late great Joey Dunlop, Michael can fairly claim that racing is in his blood. Now for the first time he talks in depth about his family story, how he got involved in the family business and how he manages to keep getting back on his bike despite all he knows of the deadly risks he encounters every time he crosses the start line.

The death of his uncle during a competition in Estonia in 2000 was followed just eight years later by the death of his father at the North West 200. But despite these tragic losses, Michael was undeterred, and, two days after his father's death, he returned to the North West - and won. The next year Michael won his first TT, joining both his father and uncle in the record books.

Now with 13 TT wins to his name, Michael is a phenomenal competitor, and in this sensational autobiography he reveals the highs and lows of racing, what it was like growing up part of a motorcycle dynasty and how that made him the incredible racing driver he is today.

The best book about motorcycle racers, by far

The level of honesty and humour in this book is unparalleled. Highly recommended read, and that's a recommendation coming from someone who has recently finished autobiographies of Guy Martin and John McGuinness.

A must listen, and I'm not even mad on bikes..

A fab listen to a fab book, literally flew through it as it was just so enjoyable, brilliantly read by Drew Dillon. The book gives you a true sense of what makes this unique road racing star tick. Highly recommended.

The tale of a true TT legend

A great insight into the mind and motivations of the latest of the Dunlop clan of Tourist Trophy kings. Some truly poignant moments regarding the loss of his father.
