1976 BARRY SHEENE AND MICHELIN :  a love story Barry inspired us to work even harder. Some say he was conservative because he didn’t want to run a slick tyre on the front, but that’s not true; he simply demanded feedback and sensations from his front tyre that our product did not deliver. He motived us to make progress.

1976. Spain’s Angel Nieto amassed a superb career CV: six 50cc world crowns and seven 125cc titles... Michelin had already come close to clinching a clean sweep by triumphing in four of the five classes (in addition to the Formula 750 title, which did not carry the ‘World Championship’ tag). A year later, the manufacturer completed the job with Angel Nieto, Pier Paolo Bianchi, Mario Lega, Takazumi Katayama, Barry Sheene and a team of dedicated tyre technicians. #michelin
