For as long as there have been motorbikes, men have been racing them on the roads. Road racing, unique to Ireland and the Isle of Man, takes this sport to the limit. The ultimate challenge of pitting man and machine against the elements terrifies and exhilarates spectators and competitors alike. Hurtling through winding country lanes, the racers display consummate skill and nerves of steel as they push themselves and their bikes to the max. Beautiful Danger is a celebration of all that is awesome about this hugely popular and unique sport. Bringing together 101 of the best road racing photographs ever taken - many never before seen - and accompanied by Stephen Davison's passionate commentary, the book reveals the sheer spectacle of the sport, capturing the speed and the power of the men and machinery against the beautiful landscapes which form the backdrop to the frenetic action. This is a book by a fan for the fans. All the greats are there, from Agostini and Hailwood to folk heroes like the Dunlop brothers. Star name racers, Herron, Ivy, McCallen, Reid, Rutter and Williams, also feature in Davison's hall of fame.
