Rob Andrews’ eagerly awaited new book, The Inside Line: Racing the 500cc World Motocross Championship is now available at

Tracing the journey of the British former 500 GP star, from unremarkable amateur through to factory Kawasaki rider, GP contender, and member of Great Britain’s 1985 Motocross des Nations team , The Inside Line is a unique, comprehensive, and fascinating first-hand account of what it was really like to race in the 500cc world motocross championship during its 1980s heyday.

Incredibly detailed, and unlike any publication that has come before, the reader will learn how the whole world championship system worked, and discover what it was like to be a professional racer, riding a full-factory 500 against some of the sport’s most decorated stars, and on many of the most famous and revered grand prix motocross circuits.

Superbly illustrated, this hefty, 400 page, full-colour hardback book features nearly 400 outstanding and never-before-published images from some of the sport’s most acclaimed photographers.

Author, Rob Andrews: “I feel very fortunate that the best years of my GP racing career coincided with an incredibly memorable period for the 500cc world championship. To be able to share my own experiences of that great time in motocross grands prix is equally exciting”.

On sale now at, The Inside Line: Racing the 500cc World Motocross Championship is priced at £40 plus postage, and worldwide shipping is available.
