Hollywood screenwriters could not have scripted a more exciting finale. By that last race the tension had been ratcheted up to an almost unbearable level. With seemingly unstoppable late-season momentum Rossi had relentlessly chipped away at Hayden’s earlier lead of 51 points. Now add to that drama the supporting plot lines of conflicts between teammates, technical problems with bikes, and controversy over how rules were applied, and you have the story of one of the most amazing seasons in motorcycle racing, told in riveting detail with spectacular photographs.
