MIKE THE BIKE - El Solitario


He was known as “Mike The Bike” because of his natural riding ability. Later in his career he went on to compete in Formula One auto racing, becoming one of the few men to compete at the Grand Prix level on motorcycles and in auto racing. Mike died tragically in 1981, on a stupid car accident onboard his Rover SD1, while shopping for fish & chips, hit by a delinquent truck.
