‘He has all the potential to become the greatest of all time’ Valentino Rossi, nine-time world champion Marc Márquez is a phenomenon in the world of motorsports. In his first season in MotoGP, at the tender age of 20, he achieved the extraordinary by becoming the youngest world champion ever. He’s currently dominating in his second season, and is set to become the greatest the sport has ever seen. In his first official biography - fully-illustrated with many unseen photographs - Marc offers an exclusive insight into his first year racing in the premier class and his historic championship win. Through the words of his team, his family and his rivals for the title, we begin to understand the answer to his remarkable success. It’s the story of Marc’s greatest risks and challenges, from vision problems that put a halt on his career to the huge crash in May that saw him flying off his bike at a staggering speed of 175 mph. But Marc continues to rewrite history, earning titles with his fearless racing and winning fans with his boyish charm and famous smile – and smashing every record along the way.

This visual biography explores the legendary career of motorcycle racer Valentino Rossi, including his victories, rivalries, and racing class transitions across Aprilia, Honda, Yamaha, and Ducati race bikes. From the day he was born into a racing family on February 16, 1979, Valentino Rossi seemed destined for racing greatness. Racing karts and minimotos as a child, he progressed to international motorcycle competition in 1996, riding for Aprilia in the 125cc class; Rossi won his first World Championship the following year. Advancing to MotoGP’s premier class in 2000, Rossi would go on to win nine Grand Prix World Championships and score 89 victories in 371 starts. In this richly illustrated review of the most successful MotoGP career of the twenty-first century, relive Rossi’s incredible battles against the likes of Max Biaggi, Sete Gibernau, Dani Pedrosa, and more and how they inspired three films (Faster, Fastest, and Hitting the Apex). Long-time motojournalist and author Michael Scott was at the circuit for nearly all of Rossi's 432 grand prix races and every one of his 115 grand prix wins. Rossi’s incredible charm, wit, and irreverence earned him a huge fan base and his indomitable will to win cemented his racing legend. Valentino Rossi: Life of a Legend recounts it all.

The Athlete as National Symbol

 Examining the phenomenon of nationalism in the world of sport, this collection of new essays identifies moments when athletes became national symbols through their actions on and off the field. Since the break-up of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia, and related global events of the 1980s and 1990s, scholars have explored how race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality shape and are shaped by nationalism and national participation. Topics include: race, golf and the struggle for social justice in South Africa; sport as a battleground within the Israel/Palestine conflict; multiculturalism and the Olympic Games; and white privilege in sport. These case studies explore the strength (and fragility) associated with national identity, and how athletes become icons for their nations.
