Description
A story of speed, genius, tragedy - and an overwhelming will to succeed. At 23, James Toseland was the youngest ever winner of the World Superbike Championship and with more racing experience than riders twice his age, he has overtaken previous champions Carl Fogarty and Nell Hodgson to become the next biking superstar.

Toseland's success has been driven by a lifetime of tragedy, his father deserting him when he was eighteen months old and his mother's next partner, who bought him his first bike, committing suicide when James was just thirteen. 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.
