Jonathan Rea's autobiography will hit shelves later this year.

When you win three successive World Superbike titles, you're bound to have a story or two to tell.

Jonathan Rea certainly does and, even better, he's finally got them down on paper.

The reigning champ announced on Wednesday afternoon that he has penned an autobiography titled 'Dream. Believe. Achieve.'


What can I expect in the book?

There will no doubt be plenty of tales of success from his 59 World Championship victories to date. But also, we'll get to hear about the journey that led to the top of the sport from the man himself.

"The book charts the life and career of a man who was seemingly destined for the motorbike racing world," reads the blurb. "Jonathan’s grandfather was the first sponsor of 5 Times World Champion Joey Dunlop and his dad was a former Isle of Man TT winner. He has succeeded in Superbikes after several potential career-ending scrapes including smashing his femur in a horrific crash, aged seventeen, when doctors told him he would never race again.

"With unwavering determination, and gaining huge victories in this ultra-competitive sport, this thrilling autobiography will get into the head of a man who has managed to rise to the top of one of the most skilled and dangerous sports in the world."

When and how can I get my hands on it?

Hold on to your excitement for now because the book isn't out until October 18th. If you want to make sure you don't forget to pick it up, you can even pre-order right away here.

The book is priced £20 for the hardback cover or you can even buy a Kindle edition for £14.99.
