This book tells the fascinating story of a boy from a small village close to Barcelona and of his dream to ride a motorbike, which took him from a badly-kept Cota 49 to a 500cc Honda with the cutting-edge technology of the time. A story of dreams and triumphs, but also of difficult moments, spectacular falls and time spent in hospital. The ups and downs of a risky and passionate sport.
Àlex Crivillé is one of the main icons of high-speed Spanish motorbike racing. World Champion in 125cc in 1989, coming from the rear-end of already legendary names, he was the first to obtain the great challenge of winning the crown of the world speed championship and ending the over-riding dominance of anglo-saxon motorbike riders. World Champion of 500cc in 1999, he was involved in one of the toughest duels in the history of motor-cycle racing with Mick Doohan, managing to defeat him and gain the world championship crown. Since retiring from competition in 2002 he works as a World Championship Commentator on TVE.
