Kevin Schwantz burst on to the scene in 1986 at the Transatlantic Challenge races and went on to quickly establish himself as a favourite of the fans. Through interviews and classic all-action footage we look at Schwantz’s rapid rise from rookie to World Championship title challenger. Unsurprisingly his legendary rivalry with Wayne Rainey takes centre stage as they do battle fairing-to-fairing on some of the world’s best known circuits such as Spa-Francorchamps, Assen, Donington, Suzuka and Jerez. The film ends with the close of the 1989 season so we don’t get to see Schwantz crowned world Champion in 1993 but it gives a great insight into the grit, determination and style it takes to become a true Bike Hero.
