Signed by JT
by JT & Ted Macauley
The youngest ever World Superbike Champion at 23, James Toseland rocketed into a league of biking legends.
Now, after seven success-filled years in Superbikes, James is ready to make the leap into MotoGP.
On the bike, James’ daredevil attitude has led to tremendous success and some horrific crashes in equal measure.
Off the bike, James has overcome family tragedy, trained as a classical pianist, performed as a member of the aptly named band Crash, and was crowned “Cosmopolitan” centrefold of the year.
But racing is, and will always be, his overriding passion. James’ adrenalin-fuelled tale is a story of genius, courage and an overwhelming desire to win.
