Planet Racers.

"Godman" Falcon's Fitts Planet Racing #23 Bike
"PLANET RACERS: Book One: Life Cycle introduces readers to the world of Planet Racing. It's the year 2999. Trillions of race fans in thousands of star systems tune in to the weekly foldspace vidcasts of the United Systems Planet Racing Association's open-class championship race series. These huge two-wheeled monsters are operated by two-person teams (pilot and navigator) from all over the galaxy.

All eyes are on the two Koyoshada factory team riders -- points leader Tripper Nitro and close second "golden boy" Godman Falcon. These teammates are also fierce rivals... no love is lost between them.

But halfway through the season, a horrible racing accident on Darthon-7 results in Godman Falcon losing his factory ride. All seems bleak for the "golden boy"... until an encounter with Methania Fitts of the Fitts Racing team gives him a second chance. Together, Godman and Methania will contest the championship for the remainder of the season.
