From the Back Cover:

This is the fast lane and they all dance inside a ring of fire. . . .

 

In Ring of Fire, the first book to cover the whole of the MotoGP era, Rick Broadbent provides an insider’s behind-the-scenes account of the acclaim, heroism, pressures, and danger of racing on two wheels at 200 miles per hour. At its center is Valentino Rossi, the brilliant, ruthless, and eccentric Italian megastar who has ridden his otherworldly talent and skill to nine World Championships—and counting—including seven in MotoGP’s premier class. Intertwined with Rossi’s tale is the story of the sport’s many stars, past and present, a collection of fascinating personalities forged by speed, danger, and competition into modern-day gladiators who put their lives on the line every Grand Prix weekend. Rossi’s long list of rivals—Max Biaggi, Sete Gibernau, Casey Stoner, Nicky Hayden, Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo, and others—are all profiled with Broadbent’s insightful observations and keen eye for the telling detail. Ring of Fire is an intense and engrossing journey into the world of MotoGP.

From the Inside Flap:

Ring of Fire: The Inside Story of Valentino Rossi and MotoGP intertwines the stories of two of the sport’s greatest riders—current megastar Valentino Rossi and 1960s legend Mike Hailwood—painting a revealing portrait of the racers, personalities, and behind-the-scenes intrigue from both eras. Packed with engaging character studies and unforgettable anecdotes, this book takes the reader into the world of MotoGP like never before.

Descrizione libro Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. MotoGP is enjoying a period of unprecedented popularity and Ring of Fire details the acclaim, the heroism and the pressures of riding motorbikes at speeds of more than 200mph. This is a world where manufacturers invest millions and the world champion celebrates by staging mock jail breaks and giving pillion rides to a blow-up doll. One rider warms up for major races by singing Hank Marvin songs on his karaoke machine and a rising Italian star sees the world in terms of black and white energy tubes. Another sees nothing strange in racing with two broken ankles. Ring of Fire covers the recent history of MotoGP, from American Nicky Hayden spectacularly overturning established champion Valentino Rossi in 2006, through the emergence of wild young Australian Casey Stoner as the new champion in 2007, to the fierce rivalry between them and Spaniards Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo in what would prove to be one of the most closely-contested years of racing in 2008.It gives a behind the scenes look at World Superbike Champion James Toseland s attempts to break into this elite, and looks back at the tradition of reprobates, romance and debauchery in the paddock dating back to the 60s and stars like Mike Hailwood and Giacomo Agostino. Rick Broadbent introduces us not just to the stars and the multi-million pound contracts, but also to the officals, mechanics, doctors, team owners and fans who make up this white-knuckle ride of a sport. By turns funny, sad, shocking and uplifting, Ring of Fire brings us face to face with those who battle to emerge unscathed, or who just ignore the pain and ride to win against all odds.
