Carl Fogarty is indisputably Britain's greatest motorcycle racer since Barry Sheene. In a stellar career 'Foggy' won the Isle of Man TT three times, setting a new lap record in the process, and went on to become a four-time World Superbike Champion.
A vivid character on the bike and off it, Foggy could be sure of the support of legions of fans, especially when he was racing in Britain or Italy - he was a Ducati rider after all!
This film, never before released on DVD, profiles Carl at the end of the 1993 season as his career is about to really take off.
Tracing Carl's racing from his early days in the TT F1 World Championship (where he collected three titles), through 500cc Grand Prix racing at Donington and Anderstorp, the North West 200, TT, 24-hour endurance racing right up to the start of his phenomenal World Superbike success (but not his first World Championship victory), this is a comtemporary profile of a star who was about to go stratospheric.
With interesting race footage and fascinating interviews with the man himself, Bike Hero Carl Fogarty is a must-view programme for fans, and a great piece of nostalgia for those who were there when "King Carl" was in his pomp.
