Doctorcosta (GB)

Tales of tears and triumph from the man behind the clinica mobile

English text
This book is the autobiography of the doctor who "fixes" motorcycle racers. When they fall and fracture, it's Dr. Costa who gets them back on their feet and back on their bikes, salvaging both their bodies and their careers. The riders adore him: when they call, he comes running - day and night, all over the world. He is their Guardian Angel.
The author tells of courage, pain, death and the clash between individual and society and offers us an intriguing behind-the-scenes look at the crashes - and subsequent roads to recovery - of the many champions he has treated in a career spanning three decades: from Jarno Saarinen to Valentino Rossi, the list includes Mick Doohan, Giacomo Agostini, Wayne Gardner, Renzo Pasolini, Virginio Ferrari, Wayne Rainey, Loris Capirossi, Marco Melandri, Manuel Poggiali, Max Biaggi and many more.
Claudio Costa takes a close look at just what makes the riders tick, offering us an extraordinary insight into why they race, risk, fall and then do it all again before they've even healed. He also charts the success of the Clinica Mobile, the travelling hospital he founded that follows the motorcycle international championships all over the world, offering injured riders excellent medical care at every race.
A fascinating work, Doctor Costa is a must for all motorcycling fans.
