The Explosive Autobiography of the World Superbike Champion
Carl Fogarty is one of the world's greatest motorbike riders and arguably the best ever 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.
'Foggy' is a typically frank account of the transformation from a shy and awkward teenager to the self-assured celebrity. 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 wife Michaela and his two daughters.
The book provides a unique insight into 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.
