I also get the distinct impression, since this book doesn't sugar coat anything (although it is all presented from her subjective PoV as you'd expect) that like all driven people, she can be a complete PITA to live with and/or work with sometimes. But still, a good, interesting and credible life story well told!
I was very impressed,its a great read you wont be disappointed.
Queen of bikers covers a fascinating insight into Maria's struggle to simply be accepted in a clearly male dominated sport. The highs of world records to the lows or injuries and depression. Maria describes with passion her career from a first time motorcyclist on the road to fulfilling her dream of becoming the fastest woman around the Isle of Man. She provides an insight into the at times fragile mind of a racer as well as the determination that anything is achievable with hard work.
A roller-coaster of emotions what will at differing times have you laughing, wincing, feeling elated for Maria and at other times have you filling up at her latest setback. Told in a very matter of fact manner that encourages you to continue reading.
I can't remember the last time I read a book in it's entirety so quickly, I simply couldn't stop turning the digital pages!
She is an inspiration.
I hope this book encourages a lot more women to get involved in racing, even if it's car's!
No matter how hard Maria gets knocked down.
Whether through crashes, or the general mess of actually getting a competitive team together.
She just brushes herself down and gets on with it, no matter who tries to put her down.
As racing is like that there are idiots around.
Though there are lot more good people who selflessly provide support
Maria was awarded her MBE because she is an exemplary example for the sport and a great rolemodel.
So deservedly Maria gets the support of fans and people in the sport, that warrants her reputation.
Which she built up with years of hard graft.
Keep at it!
Maria is an interesting and motivated woman, determined to make her way in the still male-dominated world of motorcycle racing. She has fought for her success and deserves it 100%, she has not given in to injury or other obstacles that have appeared along the way.
This book is definitely worth a read and, if like me, you have been a racing fan for many years, it does give a small insight into their world. Particularly touching are Maria's memories of DJ, anyone who saw them at meets could see the true friendship they shared.
I hope Maria continues to inspire young women to race and that she continues to grace the paddock with her smile and experience.
