I must confess that I'd picked the book up previously in a book shop and wanted to buy it there and then. For those that are into motorcycle sport or just action photography, this is a stunning portfolio that crystalises every moment perfectly. The smell of hot engines, the sudden harsh shriek of an exhaust is practically there. Combined with anecdotes and photographs that help give a hint of the men behind the visor, this is a carefully composed book that's a must have. Definitely one to enjoy on a wet winter evening in the comfort of your favourite armchair.

I really enjoyed this book, and as a fellow motorsport photographer, appreciated the quality of the images within. Fan's of Steven Davison's Ragged Edge book will find this one equally interesting, as the author's enthusiasm and close relationship for road racing is very involving. From the extreme feelings of joy when winning a race, to the sad losses of many of the sport's heroes, Davison's writing is the perfect accompaniment to his amazing photographs. If you like motorbike racing then you'll enjoy it!
