The first official Sheene Teaser Trailer has been released for the forthcoming biopic of British motorcycle legend Barry Sheene. But will it be any good?

Barry Sheene : the coolest rider in story

Barry Sheene (Member of the Order of the British Empire) (London, September 11, 1950 - Sydney, 10 March 2003) was a British motorcycle racer, twice world champion in the 500cc class in 1976 and 1977.

Sheene's battle with Kenny Roberts at the 1979 British Grand Prix at Silverstone has been cited as one of the greatest motorcycle Grand Prix races of the 1970s. After the 1979 season, he left the Heron-Suzuki factory team, believing that he was receiving inferior equipment to his team-mates. He shifted to a privateer on a Yamaha machine, but soon started receiving works equipment.
