Motorcycle road racing at its highest level attracts a very select band of participants; undeniably brave and skilful, but well aware of the hazards involved in pursuing such a career. Looking back to one hundred years ago, an earlier generation of young men was prepared to accept that same challenge. However any comparison with their spindly machines, practically devoid of suspension and braking systems, to the space-age Moto GP projectiles is quite unrealistic. TT winners, pre-war and post-war feature in this selection of iconic riders, covering the period from the 1920s to the1960s. Also included are the early post-war world champions; Graham, Lomas and many others in decades of great technical and historical interest. The book contains stunning pencil sketches of all the riders.
