About the Book
THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER-ONE BESTSELLER
Michael Dunlop is the greatest road racer on the planet. Brother of William, an accomplished rider himself, son of the late Robert and nephew of the late, great Joey Dunlop, for Michael, racing has always been in his blood.
For the first time Michael talks in depth about his family story, how he got involved in the family business and how he manages to keep getting back on his bike despite all he knows of the deadly risks he encounters every time he crosses the start line.
The death of his uncle during a competition in Estonia in 2000 was followed just eight years later by the death of his father at the North West 200. But, despite these tragic losses, Michael was undeterred and, two days after his father’s death, returned to the North West. And won. The following year Michael won his first TT, joining both his father and uncle in the record books, and he hasn’t looked back since.
Getting ever closer to his uncle Joey's record number of TT wins, Michael has evolved into the ultimate rider. In this autobiography, he reveals the highs and lows of racing, what it was like growing up as part of a motorcycle dynasty, and how that made him the incredible rider he is today.
