New Zealand speedway legend Ivan Mauger’s biography – “The Will To Win” — goes on sale this month.
Written by Martin Rogers, it is a tell-all exposé on Ivan Mauger’s life, adventures, his philosophy on the Will to Win and how he continues to pass this training on to the young riders of today.
Ivan was not just any motorcycle champion — he was by popular acclaim ‘the man of the millennium’, an accolade which did not happen by accident.
His world titles, six individual, three long track, four team, and two pairs, plus four European and four British championship wins, plus countless silver and bronzes, were the result of his relentless pursuit of excellence.
In speedway, the name ‘Ivan’ can only refer to one man, a man of legend status! A legend in the telling!
With hundreds of photos, including 16 pages in full colour, this hard- back release is a must read.

And everyone who fondly remembers the heyday of Speedway and its personalities will relish the nostalgia through pictures and stories.
