MCN Sport: Barry Sheene

MCN: Barry Sheene is a special tribute to the genius that was racing legend Barry Sheene, we hear from other riding superstars like Cal Crutchlow and Kenny Roberts on what they thought of the great man. Away from the track we hear from Steve Parrish and Barry’s children on what he was like as a mate and a dad.

We take a look at his bikes and find out why the RG500 was the perfect match for Barry’s riding style, plus the championship winning machines of the ’76 and ’77 seasons. Plus, we’re introduced to bike’s that have been lovingly restored to their former glory. 

There’s a collection of some of his best MCN columns and excerpts from a new book, plus tons of facts and info about his brilliant racing career. 

There's a choice of two editions - the standard edition, priced at £5.99 and the Collector's edition, a limited run of 500 individually numbered copies, signed by Bazza's best mate Steve Parish and containing a high quality glossy poster, priced £14.99.
