Product Description

Road Racers

Road racers are no ordinary mortals. Riding at extraordinary speeds and desperate to win, they are locked in a life-and-death battle every time they race. This book is a tribute to these icons and their incredible skill, and to the energy and excitement of one of the world’s most thrilling sports. From Ireland to the Isle of Man and from the Czech Republic to Spain, leading photographer and writer Stephen Davison follows the riders as they take on some of the most challenging races in national and international road racing. But Road Racers also looks to something deeper – to the fear that every rider has to face down; to the steely strength that it takes to win; and to the extremes of exhilaration and despair that define the sport. With the kind of access to the riders that most of us only dream of, Davison’s photographs and writing give an unparalleled insight into what it means to be a road racer. Intimate portraits, unguarded moments, family, fans and friendships, life and death – this is the ultimate road racing book.
