Ove Fundin is one of the giants of speedway racing. A combination of tenacity, temperament and sheer talent carried him to the very top in the sport and a unique World championship record, winning the supreme individual title five times, in 1956, 1960, 1961, 1963 and 1967, and standing on the World Final rostrum for ten consecutive years following his first title win. His ruthless pursuit of success - no one hated to lose more than Fundin - often upset the British crowds who, because of his red hair, called him The Fox. But he was adored in Norwich, where he rode for ten seasons - and many who saw him compete still insist that Ove was the most fantastic speedway rider who ever lived. He was European Champion four times, Swedish Champion nine times and the first foreign rider to hold the Golden Helmet British Match Race Championship. Drawing on the thoughts and recollections of Fundin himself, and of the people who know him and have raced alongside him, this authorised biography gives a searingly vivid insight into the complicated and volatile personality behind the world-renowned speedway superstar. Neither he nor his contemporaries have held anything back in this intimate portrait of an extraordinary life.
