Triple World Superbike champion Jonathan Rea has announced he will release an autobiography in October

The reigning World Superbike champion, who equalled Carl Fogarty’s all-time wins record last time out in Imola, is on course to also match Fogarty’s world title record as he hunts a fourth crown this year. Rea currently leads the riders’ standings by 47 points ahead of nearest challenger Chaz Davies.

Rea’s autobiography, titled ‘Dream. Believe. Achieve.’ will map out the Northern Irish rider’s career path from the son of an Isle of Man TT winner to becoming a triple world champion while it is also set recounts on key career and life moments, including his horrific crash at 17 when he broke his femur and was told by doctors he would never race again.

The book, published by HarperCollins, is available to pre-order ahead of its official release date on October 18 2018, four days after the all-new Argentina round, which is likely to coincide with Rea’s battle to make history as a four-time World Superbike champion.

“The team has been very supportive of me and my co-author, and long-time friend, Steve Booth [former Honda PR],” Rea said. “It’s only now when I recall the last few decades with him I realise the incredibly special journey I am on and those who’ve been part it.

“It hasn’t all been plain sailing though and there have been a lot of life lessons learned along the way. This book will be very open and honest about how I’ve been able to make my dreams and ambitions become a reality.”
