Paul Whitehouse - Roberts vs. Sheene to the Finish
Kenny Roberts Barry Sheene Yahama Suzuki Racing Motorcycle Motorbike Blank Birthday Card by Artist Paul Whitehouse
One of the great sporting rivalries, Kenny Roberts and Barry Sheene
battled each other with passion, skill and, at times, sheer hatred for
dominance in the 500cc World Championships of the late 1970s. Riding for
Yamaha, Roberts would end up bettering Sheene, riding for Suzuki, and won the
1978, 1979 and 1980 championships after Sheene had won in 1976 and 1977.
