Promotional Information

Following the retirement of the legendary Carl Fogarty, Chris Walker has become Britain's most popular motorcycle racer. Incredibly brave, outspoken and with talent to burn, Chris is frank about his hell-raising exploits on and off track, his legion of fans and his action-packed career in World and British superbikes. Chris Walker's first book recreates his zest for life, passion for bikes, but most-of-all, his unique sense of humour. It includes not only the inside story of his racing, but revelations of his and fellow riders' more 'racy' exploits. Chris will also expose some of the inner demons that are rarely shown to the public. Major storylines include: / A childhood surrounded by bikes, and his first girlfriend: 'She was 13 going on 21 and had the biggest boobs I have ever seen.' / A catalogue of broken bones: just weeks after spending four months in plaster following a serious road bike accident, he almost severed his other leg when motocrossing. / The inevitable attention of the opposite sex: 'Girls would not have been knocking on my motorhome door offering a blow-job if I hadn't been racing bikes!' / The classic season-long ding-dong battle with arch-rival Neil Hodgson, which went to the courts over disputed points. / The loyal support, and exploits, of his five-strong 18-stone posse of mates known as the 'Big Lads' and the less-welcome attentions of a fully-fledged stalker. / A switch to Carl Fogarty's race team: 'The bike caught fire during practice at Silverstone and I jumped off to avoid serious injury -- but not before all my pubic hair had burnt off!' / His battles with the debilitating Bell's Palsy. / His long-awaited first World Superbike win from the back of the grid at Assen in 2006. Updated and told in Chris's inimitably self-deprecating style -- and with all the drama of the opening races of the 2008 World Supersport series -- the book breaks the mould of recent motorcycling autobiographies. Lead title / Chris Walker is the most popular current British motorcycle racer, with an unprecedented following within the sport. / Fully updated with new material on Stalker's 2008 season with Kawasaki in the World Supersport Championship. / Sales of Foggy (110k in hardback, 40k in paperback) and Valentino Rossi (90k hardback, 20k in paperback) autobiographies demonstrate that motorcycling fans have an insatiable appetite for books on their race heroes. / A recent DVD featuring Chris, produced by the Motorcycle Industry Association and entitled 'The Street, The Track, An Open Road', sold nearly 225,000 copies.

About the Author

Chris Walker was born in March 1972 in Nottingham. He was a successful motocross rider for nearly ten years before graduating to superbikes. He has scored twelve podium finishes, including a memorable first World Superbike win at Assen in 2006. A big crowd favourite at home in Britain, his spectacular riding style and impressive record has earned him the 'Stalker' tag. He has been British Superbike runner-up four times, and currently rides for Kawasaki in World Supersport. Neil Bramwell is a former sports journalist who collaborated with Carl Fogarty on his runaway bestselling autobiography, Foggy.

Reviews

"... the tales of contract wrangles and rider rivalries are gripping, as are Walker's off-track exploits, as he drives round Europe in his motorhome leaving behind a trail of speeding tickets and discarded knickers." Independent on Sunday
