They were great friends and even greater rivals.
Steve Hislop and Carl Fogarty formed one of the most talented rivalries in TT history. A latter day Agostini and Hailwood.
Their Isle of Man TT Races® careers saw them arrive in the early 1980s when riders like Joey Dunlop and Brian Reid were dominating the leaderboards.
In a few short years it was Hislop and Fogarty who were making the running – and breaking records to boot.
Sometimes team mates, often competing against each other, “Hizzy” and “Foggy” dazzled the crowds and brought a magical mix of excitement, fun and drama into the TT paddock.
Their crowning glory was the 1992 Senior TT Race – widely regarded as one of the best and most important clashes in TT history. Both riders put everything on the line for victory – and celebrated the result together late into the night.
This is the story of one of the Isle of Man TT’s greatest and most enduring rivalries.
