The English called him the Black Devil, an admiring reminder of his daring riding. Yet there are not many people today who remember Omobono Tenni (1906-1948), one of the greatest motorcycle aces of all time. His ability to go faster than his competitors – even on inferior bikes – his riding style, his empathy with the machine, his courage and approach to a race and to existence itself – always poised between the most strenuous commitment and amused inspiration – are similar to those of the most highly acclaimed champion of our times, Valentino Rossi. The exciting text is enriched by an outstanding collection of photographs, all of which makes a spectacular and emotional impact.
