Description

In the many years since Joey Dunlop's untimely death, his stature has only grown. One of the racing world's most successful riders, and certainly its leading role-model, he is sorely missed by bike enthusiasts everywhere. Joey Dunlop's racing career began in 1969, and his yellow helmet and number 3 bike quickly became synonymous with high-octane wins. He was one of the most exciting riders the sport has ever seen, drawing huge crowds to the Isle of Man TT races and to every other course he raced. Joey received an MBE for his motorcycling prowess; his racing record remains unsurpassed: twenty-six wins in twenty-five years at the TT races, and five times World Champion. On 2 July 2000 the forty-eight-year-old rider crashed during a race in the republic of Estonia. The death of Joey Dunlop triggered an unparalleled emotional response as the sporting world and his fans openly mourned his passing. He is still revered as a motorcycling legend. This book looks at Joey Dunlop's legacy and captures the rider, the family man, the winner, the humanitarian - the person behind the legend that is the 'King of the Roads'. With previously unseen photographs and updated introduction and legacy chapters, this book is a real celebration of Joey Dunlop's life and career from the public glories to the private moments.
