I did enjoy the insight into the lives of the various racer protagonists, coupled with the backstories explaining their motivations and their feuds.
However I found the writer's use of repetitive phrasing highly irritating, and I started skipping over these words after the 5th or 6th reading of them.
I'm not even sure why he does this. Perhaps to indicate a feeling of consensus at the time? Perhaps to express the mantras that some riders lived by? All unnecessary.
I found the sections on Biaggi particularly disrespectful, and I was no Biaggi fan.
Yes he was not an easy character to like at the time (has mellowed since retirement however) but I cringed when this writer repeated the same phrase about him over an over.
This guy is no Matt Oxley, and I doubt I'd buy anything else written by him.
