'You don't get to be six-time British Superbike Champion without having talent and desire' - Wayne Rainey, Three-time 500CC World Champion.

Shane 'Shakey' Byrne knows what it is like to live on the edge. The most successful rider in British Superbike history, he is the only person to have won the championship six times. Shakey is a living motorbike legend, with legions of fans across the country.

For the first time Shakey tells his life story, from being abandoned as a newborn baby in a London hospital, to multiple brushes with the law and working night shifts on the London Underground to fund his early racing career. Whether it was on his BMX or joyriding through Kent, the only thing Shakey ever wanted to do was race motorbikes.

Once he had got his break, Shakey quickly developed a reputation as one of the most exciting riders of his generation, and the thrill of every victory, every chicane and every overtake, as well as the hospital visits and painstaking recovery, is relived in heart-pumping detail.

Unshakeable is an incredible story of winning and risk-taking, of horrendous crashes in which he nearly lost his life, of Ducatis and monster motorhomes, and of hard-fought glory in one of the most exciting and dangerous sports on the planet. Told with breathless exhilaration, Shakey's story is one of inspiration, break-neck speed and a life lived truly on, and over, the limit.

Shakey is someone I have the utmost respect for both on and off the track; a fantastic racer with such a textbook style and he taught me the respect needed in our game after you've won or lost. For me this makes him a legend of our sport.
