Rather than offering a simple recap of all 50 seasons, this huge retrospective captures the romance and legend of these rocket-like bikes and their daredevil riders. Readers will witness the sport's development from '49 to the present in the context of such manufacturers as Norton, MV Agusta, Moto Guzzi, Honda and Ducati, as well as riders like Agostini, Hailwood, Redman, Rainey, Doohan and Fogarty. A wealth of photography is supported by rare race posters and advertisements, and an authoritative narrative is peppered with sidebars highlighting major technical developments and the sport's human side. Like no other Grand Prix motorcycle history ever attempted!
