Book Description

1 July 2004
Jeremy McGrath is an unlikely champion who became a legend in Supercross, and helped bring the sport out of the backyard and into your living room. With a flair and personality all his own, he dominated the track like no one had before, proved you could win with both style and substance, and raised the bar on what any single rider could achieve.

From Jeremy's first entry and initiation into Supercross to his ultimate rise, Wide Open gives fans a stadium view of his life, on and off the racetrack. There are great on-track battles with the likes of Jeff Emig, Jeff Stanton, and Ricky Carmichael; Jeremy's professional dealings with the American Motocross Association; overseas competitions; prizewinning purses; and the personal struggle to get to the top and stay there, despite injury, controversy, and the passage of time. Each chapter also includes tips for anyone who wants to become a Supercross champion in their own right, so that the torch may pass to the next great generation.
