Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This is the new fourth edition of a fabulous visual study compiled by one of the best bike racing journalists in the business. Compelling photographs and sharp narrative capture the larger-than-life character of Valentino Rossi both on and off the track. Rossi’s life is charted from his earliest days through to his domination of MotoGP, first with Honda, then with Yamaha, and now, for 2011, with Ducati to form a captivating all-Italian title challenge. This is a visual treat for all who appreciate Rossi’s talent and take on life in this age of conformist motorsport.
