Publisher's Summary

Michael Dunlop is quite simply the greatest road racer on the planet. Brother of William, also an accomplished rider, son of the late Robert and nephew of the late great Joey Dunlop, Michael can fairly claim that racing is in his blood. Now for the first time he 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, he returned to the North West - and won. The next year Michael won his first TT, joining both his father and uncle in the record books.

Now with 13 TT wins to his name, Michael is a phenomenal competitor, and in this sensational autobiography he reveals the highs and lows of racing, what it was like growing up part of a motorcycle dynasty and how that made him the incredible racing driver he is today.

    "Writing a book to pat yourself on the back."
    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Dunlop again?

    Sadly no


    Have you listened to any of Drew Dillon’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have nothing to compare to but his performance was good.


    Any additional comments?

    Couldn't finish this sadly as all it seemed to be was telling people how great he is and praising himself up. Guy Martins books are alot better, I would recommend those to anyone!

    "Loved it ! "

    Great audiobook , what it meant to me is that it's so local to me , I live in Coleraine , part of the North West 200 circuit, hearing so many places close to home too. A nice real life explanation of how it is , plain and simple it is of a road racing great , his father , his life , the boys' life , true grit Northern Ireland lads. Makes me proud to be from Northern Ireland. A good listen for anyone who knows current/past motorcycle racing. Thumbs up !
