It is almost impossible to overstate Valentino Rossi's achievements. Seven world titles, including five in the premier class, in a ten-year career is an astonishing record. Only all-time greats Giacomo Agostini and Angel Nieto have won more races, yet the 'The Doctor' is still only
26 years old.

No less an authority than five-times World Champion Mick Doohan suggests in the foreword to this book that Valentino may already be the best motorcycle racer we've ever seen.

MotoGP Season Review 2005 follows Rossi's imperious progress to his latest title over the 17-race season. It started with a gloves-off last corner at Jerez and finished seven months later with a minor miracle at Valencia. Along the way, Rossi made a record crowd at the British GP forget how wet and miserable they were with one of the most astonishing pieces of riding a Donington crowd has ever seen. In Italy he won one of the best races anyone can remember, and in Australia and Qatar he managed to hold off the new wave of fast young racers.

In 2005, MotoGP ventured to new horizons. China and Turkey hosted a motorcycle Grand Prix for the first time, while the USA welcomed the sport's premier class back after a break of ten years. The American race was a sellout and the Laguna Seca paddock was bursting with A-list celebrities.

In MotoGP Season Review 2005, motorcycle racing writer and commentator Julian Ryder's entertaining text describes the action and the politicking in the paddock, supported by stunning colour photography from Andrew Northcott and comprehensive data and graphics for each race.

Superb feature content provides a technical analysis of each bike, and the riders vote for their 'Rider of the Year' to complete this ultimate record of the 2005 MotoGP season.
