To Hell's Gate and Back - The Life and Extreme Times of an Off-road Motorcyclist (Hardcover): Graham Jarvis To Hell's Gate and Back - The Life and Extreme Times of an Off-road Motorcyclist (Hardcover)
Graham Jarvis 1

Graham Jarvis has been at the top of off-road motorcycling for the best part of twenty-five years and has competed in hundreds of competitions and races all over the world, from TV's Junior Kickstart in the early 1990s to the fabled and ridiculously perilous two-day Italian event Hell's Gate, which he has dominated in recent years and which is one of motorsport's most feared events. Having excelled at Trials and Enduro, Graham moved into the high-octane world of Extreme Enduro, one of the most exhilarating sports on two wheels, in 2011. Since then, he has won Extreme Enduro's five major competitions -the Erzberg Rodeo, the Red Bull Sea to Sky, the Red Bull Romaniacs, the Tough One and the chilling Hell's Gate - no fewer than twenty-five times, making him one of motorsport's most successful riders. In To Hell's Gate and Back, Graham will take us from his early years in Canterbury, where he started out on an old BMX bike that his dad had rescued from the tip, to competing against up to 1,800 riders in races where dozens are often airlifted to hospital, and only three or four finish . . . with Graham usually at the head of the field. It is a story of dedication, skill and, above all, an extreme passion for off-road motorcycling.

Did you know there are over 47,000 facts in the world?* And the good news is, many of them are in this book. That's right, The Grand Tour A-Z of the Car is the only reference guide you need for cars, driving and all related matters, especially if you're not too fussed about those facts being accurate. In this lavishly tooled book you will find a rich and satisfying collection of motor-related informations from the origins of Porsche and the fate of Lada to the dark history of the Wankel engine and the correct name for those weird little hairs on new tyres. Throughout the book, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are on hand to share their knowledge and wisdom, and then we've made the pictures bigger to fill in the gaps around it. If you want to impress your friends, and then annoy your friends, and then cause your friends to think "Oh God, now they're telling us about the slightly ironic way in which the founder of MG died" before hurriedly leaving your house, possibly forever, The Grand Tour A-Z of the Car is the book for you. The Grand Tour A-Z of the Car - literally bursting with facts!** * Grand Tour estimate ** Not literally
