Starting with the mopeds he tuned up as a teenager at the end of World War 2 and finishing with a prototype that raced in the top class of the World Championship during the early Eighties, the Italian Giancarlo Morbidelli's career as a motorcycle designer and builder reached its peak when, between 1975 and 1977, he won four world titles in two different classes. The goal was clear from 1969, when he built his first racing bike with the help of some friends, taking the path that took him to his successes. Speed, talent and bravado are mixed in a story that involves men and machines, passion and tradition, risk and tragedy. Including the friendship with Enzo Ferrari and the battles against the Japanese motorcycle companies, Morbidelli's story is now told to remember an era when David was still able to beat Goliath.
