Visordown salutes Britain's greatest-ever motorcycle racer seven years on from his death

LAST WEEK marked the seventh anniversary of the death of motorcycle racing legend Barry Sheene.

The two-time 500cc World Champion passed away on 10th March 2003, after losing a brave battle with cancer.

Sheene, undoubtedly the most charasmatic motorcycle racer this country has ever produced, lived his life to the full, both on and off the track.

So to show Bazza's gone but never forgotten, here are our top 10 images of the great man himself - shots we think capture everything the likeable Londoner stood for.
