Chris Carter has been a journalist, broadcaster, commentator and friend of the star names of international motorcycle sport for more than 60 years.
This book is a wonderful collection of anecdotes – some tragic, but mostly humorous – documenting a fascinating and unique life spent at the heart of motorcycle sport.

Few people have been as deeply involved in motorcycle sport as Chris Carter, a larger than life character and raconteur who was for a great number of years a journalist, commentator and broadcaster at the very top level of motorcycle sport.
This memoir is a funny, fascinating and unique insider view of professional motorcycling over more than six decades. From scrambling in the 1960s, to four decades of international road racing - including Daytona and Macau - and on to trials and speedway. Packed with remarkable stories and amusing anecdotes, as well as interesting reflections and astute observations, it is a light-hearted, highly readable autobiography which lifts the lid on an extraordinary world. In past times, racing paddocks were open and friendly, and Chris felt part of a big, happy family. He lived cheek by jowl with the very top riders and shared their triumphs and tragedies; to many, he was a friend and confidante. Honest, frank and direct, Chris tells things exactly as they were, and provides insights into a fast disappearing world.

Auteur(s)Chris Carter & Richard Skelton
Over de auteur(s)Richard Skelton combines working in the television industry as a sound technician with freelancing as a motorcycle journalist. He has been a motorcyclist since first taking to the road on a Yamaha FS1-E on his 16th birthday in 1976 and, although he usually rides bigger bikes these days, he keeps an FS1-E taxed and tested for summer use. His writing experience comprises occasional features for motorcycle magazines in the 1980s, a period working as a newspaper reporter in the mid 1990s and, currently, reporting for the specialist road racing publication, BikeSport News. He lives in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire.

Chris Carter has been a motorcycle broadcaster, commentator and journalist for more than 60 years. Few people have been as deeply involved in motorcycle sport. While still a boy, Chris found a niche as a precocious young circuit commentator and club reporter. In the 1960s, he was Motorcycle News' motocross correspondent, and for nearly 40 years, from the early 1970s onwards, he travelled the world covering international road racing. He is now semi-retired, but still works as a press officer for British road racing clubs and writes regular features for Classic Racer magazine.
