The book contains almost 500 pages of history and rare images with quotes from the competitors and their compatriots which eloquently capture the life of Australians who travelled from the antipodes to compete in the Continental Circus in Europe of the 1950s and 60s.
The author's introduction to motorcycling was courtesy his father's Velocette as a pillion in the 1950s. With such a start it seems hardly surprising that he became an avid reader of everything motorcycle - particularly motorcycle racing - in his formative years. His writing career began with motorcycle articles for a university newspaper and quickly progressed to motorcycle publications, to which he continues to contribute. In addition to Circus Life, Cox is also the author of Australian Motorcycle Heroes 1948-1989 (with
Will Hagon) and The Aussie and 2NZ Blokes.
