This is a long-awaited update of a fabulous visual study compiled by one of the best bike racing journalists in the business. Compelling photographs and sharp narrative capture the larger-than-life character of Valentino Rossi, one of the world's most charismatic sporting personalities, both on and off the track.

Rossi's life is charted from his earliest days, following his graduation through the ranks, winning the 125, 250 and 500 World Championships, to his domination of the 200mph MotoGP class, first with Honda and then from 2004 with Yamaha. This is a visual treat for all who appreciate Rossi's talent and take on life in this age of conformist motorsport.

Over 250 of the best Rossi photographs, from leading photographers of motorcycle racing. Photographs are gathered into themed chapters, each with a short introduction followed by picture sequences with extended captions. Chapters include World Champion Valentino, Young Valentino, 125cc Valentino, 250cc Valentino, 500cc Valentino, MotoGP Valentino, Off-duty Valentino, Comedy Valentino, Valentino Dresses Up and Valentino's Haircuts.
