Carl Fogarty--"Foggy" to his legion of fans around the globe--is, quite simply, a Superbike legend and arguably the best ever motorbike rider from Britain. He is also something of a sporting rarity. Not only is he a consistent British world champion, but superstar status has failed to affect his honest and down-to-earth approach to life.
He is the major box office attraction of the increasingly popular World Superbike Championship, which he has won a record four times, amongst other world crowns. In 1999, an amazing 120,000 fans turned up to watch him race at Brands Hatch.
Foggy is a typically frank account of the transformation from a shy awkward teenager to the self-assured celebrity and Superbike legend. It details the dangers of his sport, personal tragedies, the hell-raising years and the sport's unique sex appeal. But Fogarty is essentially a family man and he has retained his roots in the Lancashire town of Blackburn, where he lives with his wife Michaela and his two daughters.
The book provides a unique insight the big money deals that have made him a multi-millionaire and the problems that go hand in hand with such wealth. Track rivals are not spared the forthright Fogarty treatment in some startling revelations about the cut-and-thrust world of his profession. Most of all, though, he displays an ability to laugh at himself, one of the endearing charms that makes Carl Fogarty's life story a rollercoaster ride of humour and emotion.Review:
“brutal, unrelenting honesty leaps from every page”
