James Toseland: The Autobiography

James Toseland: The Autobiography

by Ted Macauley (Author), James Toseland (Author)


At 23, James Toseland was the youngest ever winner of the World Superbike Championship and with more racing experience than riders twice his age, has overtaken previous champions Carl Fogarty and Neil Hodgson to become the next biking superstar. Toseland's success has been driven by a lifetime of tragedy. Using racing as a release, he became a fearless daredevil and had moved his way up through the ranks of British Supersport by the time he was sixteen. But, there was even more turmoil to come - a career of dramatic crashes and a collision in Monza, Italy which left James seriously injured and his Honda team-mate dead. This is a story of genius, tragedy and an overwhelming will to succeed.
