This eye-catching book tells the story of World Championship motorcycle racing with particular emphasis on the past 25 years and the role of Dorna, the international sports management and marketing group. Spain-based Dorna became involved in motorcycle racing in 1992 and set about stabilising the ailing World Championship, which had run since 1949, and introducing a new era of direction and harmony, and of sporting and commercial success. The effect of Dorna's efforts is abundantly apparent in the present-day stature of MotoGP throughout the world. In this book the world's best motorcycle-racing authors tell the entire story - of the racing itself and the Dorna backdrop to it - of those 25 years in a lively style that will appeal not only to those involved professionally in the sport but also its millions of fans world-wide. * The Dorna story, written by Dennis Noyes, is a remarkable behind-the-scenes insight, especially into those early days embracing the FIM (Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme), IRTA (International Road Racing Teams Association) and MSMA (Motorcycle Sport Manufacturers Association). The stories of the battles, the money and the involvement of Bernie Ecclestone are brilliantly divulged by the key players. * The 25-year period from 1992 to 2016 is divided into five main chapters about the sport, each written by a leading journalist. * The sporting chapters each cover a five-year period, as follows, with the first World Champion of each period named: Wayne Rainey (1992-1996), Mick Doohan (1997-2001), Valentino Rossi (2002-2006), Casey Stoner (2007-2011) and Jorge Lorenzo (2012-2017). * A section called `Battles and battlegrounds' relives some of the greatest moments of the past 25 years. * Important national stories also have their own chapters, covering the history of racing in Britain, Spain, Japan, Italy, the United States, Australia, Germany and France. * Technical perspective comes from renowned technical writer Kevin Cameron
