Barry Sheene Motorcycle Racing Legend
Motorcycle Racing's Jet-Set Superstar
By: Michael Scott
Barry Sheene, one of history's great motorcycle racers, proved his skill with 19 Grand Prix wins and two World Championships. He added ambition, intelligence and vision to his Cockney charm - and it made him formidable. No other rider had seen the big picture so clearly. Starring in high-profile ad campaigns and in London's fast social set, he played the media to charm the public and his personal courage in facing serious injury made them love him more. Even after retirement Sheene remained famous - he was racing's first two-wheel superstar.
