This is an informative and entertaining account of the career of one of, if not the greates rider of all time, not the most popular amongst terrace fans I must admit to having booed him after clashes with local hero hero Ray Wilson a man Fundin describes as " that bastard Wilson ", but this book brings back memories of a bygone era.
The book tends to wander back and forth through his career with various contributions from fellow riders mechanics jounos etc and as well as Fundin portrays the ups and downs of the sport itself.
Whether the sport was really more exciting in the era of Fundin Briggs Craven etc I'm not certain but any veteran fans like myself will be convinced it was after this.
It cannot be worse than last night's " entertainment " at Beaumont Park but I'll be back for more next Saturday
Just one omission from Ove's career stats at the end of the book - his appearances for Belle Vue in 1967.
