Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne lives life on the edge. He is the only person to win the British Superbike Championship six times. In Unshakable he tells the story of his remarkable life for the first time; a life that has lived on, and over, the limit.
He tells of the horrendous crash in which he nearly lost his life and recounts tales of gangsters, glamour models and glory in one of the most exciting and dangerous sports on the planet, Shane’s previously untold story charts the journey from his abandonment as a new-born baby in a London city hospital to his unlikely crowning as one of the most popular British motorcycle racers of his generation.
From his humble upbringing by adoptive parents on a council estate in Kent, to working night shifts on the London Underground in order to fund his early racing career, Byrne’s unshakeable self-belief would take him from the tunnels deep below the capital city to the skies high above it, as a qualified helicopter pilot and the most decorated British Superbike Champion of all time.
