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. Starred 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 - racing's first two-wheel superstar. Michael Scott, author of Haynes' inspirational Wayne Rainey biography, tells Sheene's full story, including his heroic fight against cancer.
