Off-Road Giants!: Heroes of 1960s Motorcycle Sport
This book is a compilation of rider profiles written over a three year period which originally appeared in the Classic Motorcycle magazine and with a new set of photographs. All of the riders featured became top men in their fields during their heyday although for some it was the first time they had ever been interviewed. During the 1950’s and 60’s scrambling especially drew huge crowds to meetings all across the country and thanks to the TV coverage many of the competitors featured became household names. Each chapter features the competition years of the riders but it gives an overview of their careers and tries to convey their enthusiasm for the sport not just statistics or facts and figures.
