Wheel to wheel racing. There’s nothing like it. I'm doing 160 miles an hour, inches from Christian Elkin, the British champion and John McGuinness, winner of everything. We’re that close you can smell each other’s cologne. One false move from any of us will take the pack down like dominoes. That’s not going to happen. I’m not going to fall. I’m not going to fail. I can’t afford not to win this race.

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 thirteen 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.
