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.

This is a visual treat for all who appreciate Rossi’s talent and take on life in this age of conformist motorsport.
