Description

Joey Dunlop’s story is one of towering triumphs and desperate tragedies in almost equal measure. He was the definition of the everyman hero, earning the title ‘King of the Roads’ in what must be considered one of the world’s most extreme sports – motorcycle road racing. And, as well as being voted Northern Ireland’s greatest ever sportsman, he remains the most loved and most successful road racer of all time. He won the hearts and minds of millions during his 31-year career, culminating in his greatest triumph in the year 2000 at the Isle of Man TT when, approaching 50 years of age, he reclaimed his reputation as the greatest TT rider in history by defeating a new generation of talent and regaining the F1 crown for the first time in 12 years. But, just weeks after this final victory, he was killed in a racing accident. This is Dunlop’s story as it has never been told before – by those who were part of it.
