Hurricane! The Bob Hannah Story is the first book to explore the life of American motocross and Supercross racings first superstar. From the time he raced the Husquvarna he bought with ones, fives, tens, change; all of my savings, until his retirement at Unadilla in 1989, Bob Hannah won races and championships, spoke his mind, and signed almost every autograph-seekers program. Told as an oral history by Hannah himself and by those who know him best, this book is full of stories that could only have happened to a character as colorful as the Hurricane.

The tale author Tom Madigan tells is the life of an American original, a boy who went from riding dirt bikes in the desert with his father to taking the motocross world by surprise. By the time Hannah retired in 1989, he had collected 70 AMA National wins, seven AMA National titles, a MX des Nations title, and legions of devoted fans. When inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999, he was second to none in both total and consecutive wins. Richly illustrated, this is the definitive biography of the Hurricane.
