I have very little interest in Supercross but I loved this book. It started with his love for BMX and continued to his starred career in supercross. The was him and his best friend name Chris Plamer he made it go through detail in the racing parts. He also talks about when he raced bmx when he was a teenager.

Aug 16, Steven added it. He partied a lot but knew when to get serious. Refresh and try again. I would definitely read this book again.

I also chose this book because I like to hear stories from other people. The reason why is because it is huge and he has his own Supercross track there. Jeremy is the one guy I want to be like and I look up to him.

At age twenty, Jeremy got injured when he was dirt bike racing. I absolutely loved this book so much! There are not many characters in the book I read because it is a book about one person.

Jeremy still had some competitive edge in him and he proved his speed. Jeremy was a horrible rider at first but as time went on he got better. Jcgrath rated this book a five out of five because this was the best book I have ever read. It was a great book and it rocked!!! He is a very inspirational guy.

Theme One theme in opeen book that I saw jfremy lot of and stuck out to me was passion.

He was out of racing for one year after that. If Jeremy was living up in Wisconsin, he would not have that much support as he had in California.

Jeremy’s dad and Jeremy would go to the races every weekend.

A great story of a regular guy who just happens to turn out to be the greatest motocross rider ever!

It would be that way for a couple years until Jeremy got injured again in a wicked crash. This book showed both triumph and heartbreak, injury and success. This book is one of my all time favorites, I have always looked up to Jeremy McGrath as an idol.

Nov 08, Robert Bell rated it really liked it Recommends it for: In the end he ended up retiring under the Team of Yamaha. In Jeremy decided to come out of retirement for a limited number of races on the Monster Energy Supercross Circuit. Giving up is the worst thing anyone can do in life. As I began reading I found how he was interesting in the way he did everything in his life. Bought this book for the reluctant readers in my class. Both of them were actually was out there on the track racing with each other which made it so great.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. He is a very inspirational guy and he is someone people can idol and took up too. They are far or there are only a few of them.

One of his stories is when he was in open practice at a supercross race and went to jump a triple.
