Not many people decide their entire lives in a single moment but some do, and Frank Mrazek was one of them. He knew that he was put on earth to race motorcycles. He knew that he could ride them faster and smoother than anybody else in Brno, maybe in Czechoslovakia, maybe in the world. He knew it before he'd ever swung a leg over one. This is his story.


"A guide to the physics and metaphysics of motorcycle racing... This is the stuff that movies are made of..."
