Jeremy McGrath has been called ‘the Michael Jordan of Supercross’ by the Los Angeles Times, and in this revealing autobiography fans not only get his personal story, but also a detailed guide on how everyone can become a Supercross racer. Jeremy had supportive parents at the same time, which helped him a lot. It was a great book and it rocked!!! After always riding and having fun with his friends in moto So at about age 10, Jeremy was consistantly riding at wied motorcross events with all of his friends, and was trying to find a way to become better and eventually get sponsored like most of his friends were.

He started as ameture racer as a kid and then he realized that he had a really big tallant. He cased the triple and landed really hard.

He was signed with honda factory racing and that is when his career really took off. I would highly recommend this book for all readers because it not only gives you lessons about dirtbiking but it also gives you life lessons. Jeremy’s dad and Jeremy would go to the races every weekend. I have followed his career for as long as I can remember This book was an autobiography that was about his life and career that he went through it is about pages with exciting parts and intense racing that you will love about this book.

Jeremy McGrath-Wide Open by Austin Sipe on Prezi

I rated this book a five out of five because this was the best book I have ever read. When Jeremy encountered problems financially with Team Honda, his sponsor, he ended up oppen to Suzuki and then Yamaha.

Throughout the autobiography, he talks a lot about the different bikes that he used, the people that were instrumental to his success, and the good and the bad experiences he had throughout his career. This book showed both triumph and heartbreak, injury and success. The things that I do not like the most was when some parts of the book got boring.

Riley rated it it was amazing Nov 17, In the beginning of the book it talks Jeremy McGrath when he was a little kid. The age group I would recommend this to, would be teenagers and up.


Wide Open: A Life in Supercross

Oct 05, Leanne rated it liked it Shelves: It would be that way for a couple years until Jeremy got injured wife in a wicked crash. It was a super hard crash and he broke his wrist and had a really bad concussion. I say that because Jeremy had a lot of passion for his career. As he would later become really fast, he would finally get sponsored at age 14, by Team Honda.

I got I have very little interest in Supercross, and only picked up this book because it fit oopen one of the categories of required books for a class that I am taking.

Mar 18, Leigh rated it liked it. This book is one that I read vicariously while lying next to my spouse in bed! No trivia or quizzes yet. Afterwards, Jeremy got back to racing he started to train really hard to become the best racer he could. I absolutely loved this book so much! Alecia rated it it was amazing Feb 14, After that he talks about his amature motocross career and then his amature supercross career.
