An intimate diary of a year in the life of leading motorcycle rider Neil Hodgson, as he competes in the World Superbike Championship for the first time.
With Carl Fogarty's retirement and Walker's recent defection to the Grand Prix circuit, the British challenge in World Superbikes for 2001 is being spearheaded by Neil Hodgson, who will be a strong contender for the championship in his rookie season.
The book will be a diary of Neil's season from the Spanish round in Valencia on 11 March to the final round in Imola, Italy at the end of September: it will feature the highs, the lows, the crashes, the triumphs, the flashpoints ? everything about the high-octane world of professional Superbikes that makes the sport such a global attraction.
How does Neil cope with the pressure-cooker atmosphere of the World Superbike circus, and the weight of expectation that accompanies stepping into Carl Fogarty's shoes? Who are his friends and enemies on the circuit? What is the nature of his relationship with his mechanics, Ducati team-mates, and the media? And can anything rival the thrill of racing and winning on high performance motorbikes?
Neil provides the answers to all these questions and more. The book is a revealing portrait of a year inside World Superbikes as well as an intriguing insight into the mind of one of the sport's brightest prospects.
Rezension: Enthusiasts of this sport are as fanatical as in any other field, and Hodgson has long been marked out as one of the bright stars in the sport bike world. With the aid of Neil Bramwell, he vividly brings to life the sights, sounds and smells of this gritty sport. Even for the non-enthusiast, it's difficult to resist the sheer seat-of-the-pants excitement conveyed by Hodgson here, and the well-chosen illustrations perfectly complement the unpretentious text. Willow can produce this kind of book with one hand tied behind its back, and few bike aficionados will have cause to complain about this one.
