In a world where it is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain a dominance in any sporting discipline, Fogarty has won the World Superbike Championship no fewer than four times including back-to-back wins. Carl has come a long way since the early 1980s when he used to travel to circuits as far away as Finland in a clapped-out old horsebox. But those early days were also wild and enjoyable times. Tales of hell-raising abound: staggering home at five in the morning before the Isle of Man TT was clearly not the best preparation for one of the most dangerous races in the world. This autobiography tells his tale of a working class Lancashire boy made good in one of the most dangerous and glamorous of sports.

Carl Fogarty ‹ "Foggy" to his legion of fans around the world ‹ is a Superbike legend. He's the number-one box office attraction of the World Superbike Championship, which he's won a record four times, among other world crowns. He's also something of a sports rarity. Not only is he a consistent British world champion, but superstar status hasn't distorted his honest, down-to-earth approach to life. Foggy is a typically frank account of his transformation from shy, awkward teenager to self-assured sports hero. Fogarty also talks about the perils of motorcycle racing, the personal tragedies, track rivals, and the big money deals that have made him a multi-millionaire. A compelling self-portrait of a working class lad who rose to the top of one of the most glamorous and dangerous arenas in world sports.About the Author:
