Hard Roads


It begins with the road …

Join Bruce Anstey, John McGuinness, Steve Plater and a host of other riders for an action-packed road racing season.

From Cookstown and the North West 200 to Scarborough, Skerries and the Isle of Man, this is road racing at its electrifying best. In over 120 incredible photographs, Davison captures ordinary roads thronged with fans and transformed into extraordinary arenas of speed; roads where skill, courage and determination bring sweet victory. Hard Roads, too, demanding everything – total commitment, total faith and sometimes the ultimate sacrifice.

Available for the fist time in paperback, this is the ultimate road racing title.
