description

Mick Doohan was the greatest motorcycle racer of modern times - some would say ever. The teak-tough Aussie wrestled his 190 horsepower Honda to more than 50 grand prix wins and five consecutive 500cc World Championships.

His fearsome broadside riding style captivated millions of fans worldwide and made him the sport's biggest earner. The second edition of this best-selling book is a fascinating chronicle of his life, from wild boyhood to grand master.

It also examines the 1999 Jerez crash, his heroic fight to recover, reluctant retirement and new role in the sport. Author Mat Oxley has worked in GPs since 1988 and with Doohan since 1990. A former Isle of Man TT winner, he finished third in the 1986 world endurance championship.

Contents:
● Blame it on Big Brother
● Babes, Beaches and Beer. Or Bike Racing
● Young Gun, Super Angel
● Into the Feeding Fenzie
● Fire in His Belly, Pain in His Soul
● A View to the Crown
● Then We Went to Assen
● Tales of No Ordinary Madness
● The Trail of the Lonesome Tow Truck
● Becoming Good
● Out With a Bang, Not With a Wimper

A great book for all Doohan fans.
