Geoff Duke - The Stylish Champion (PB) - Description

This definitive record of one the first superstars of motorcycle racing details the career of a legend.

Geoff Duke: The Stylish Champion charts the life of the six-times World Champion through his racing career and into his involvement in the sport off the bike.

The handsome volume – the fifth in a series covering the careers of the world’s greatest motorcycle champions – examines the man who set new standards in racing and dominated the World Championship scene, on British Nortons and Italian Gileros, during the 1950s.

From becoming the first man to win three 500cc world titles in succession to becoming only the second motorcyclist to be honoured with an OBE, Geoff Duke: The Stylish Champion guides you through a stellar racing career, including staggering success at the Isle of Man TT and his endeavours in trial riding and scrambling.

His post-racing life is also documented. After retirement in 1959 Duke remained close to the sport, acting as consultant team manager and clerk of the course – he became a true ambassador for motorcycle racing.

The in-depth and richly illustrated book has been penned by a leading authority on all forms of motorcycle sport – Mick Walker has been a successful racer, tuner and team manager as well as writer.

Publisher Breedon books Publishing describes Geoff Duke: The Stylish Champion as ‘lavishly illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs, making it a must-read for any motorcycling fan’.
