Description

Former trial biking world champion Dougie Lampkin's superb autobiography gives a unique insight into one of motorsport's most famous dynasties as well as revealing the inspiration that led him to become an online sensation thanks to his extraordinary Red Bull stunts. When Dougie Lampkin was born, his father had placed a motorcycle next to his cot before he returned from hospital - if anyone can say that they were destined for a career in motorbiking it was him. So far, nine members of the Lampkin family have competed at a high level of the sport, but it was Dougie who set new standards, winning seven consecutive outdoor world titles and five indoor world titles, earning him the MBE at the age of 25. Off-road motorcycling continues to grow in popularity, with more than 100,000 people taking part in the UK alone, and millions more following online or on television. In this superb memoir, Lampkin brings the excitement of his sport vividly to life. He also shares the behind-the-scenes drama behind some of his most famous Red Bull challenges - such as the day he took his trials bike for a ride through Red Bull's Formula One factory, with Christian Horner looking on in sheer amazement as he rode his bike over a multi-million-pound F1 car, leaving it without a scratch. To date, almost 12 million people have watched this episode on YouTube. For anyone who enjoyed the books of Guy Martin or Michael Dunlop, Trials and Error is a compelling read and one ride you won't want to miss.
