About the Book

Carl Fogarty, four-time Superbike World Champion and bestselling author, draws on 18 years of international motorcycle riding to give readers a comprehensive guide to bikes, and how to ride them, from competition to leisure biking.

He begins by describing how he started out in bike racing by going to race schools. Advice is given on how to get started in the sport before Carl explores all the key techniques which the novice rider will need in their repertoire.

He goes on to talk about preparation for race riding, how you gear yourself physically through fitness, diet and teamwork for the demands of each race. Mental strength is just as important - how to block out danger, the different approach required for qualifying and racing, and how to treat the opposition.

Then we take to the track, as Carl explores the essential components of competitive racing. With expert advice from Ducati's top technicians, Carl stresses the importance of testing and set-up; race strategy is also covered - how and when should a rider overtake? There is Carl's own insight into track management as he talks the reader round the Superbike circuits in Britain and the rest of the world. There is also a full review of other types of racing, such as Enduro and Motocross and a look at leisure road riding.

The book combines personal experiences and anecdotes from Carl's glittering career, with advice on how to improve their techniques.
