From McCoy’s Facebook Page…

Garry McCoy has spent a decade in grand prix racing, proving his ability many times. Taking advantage of his small stature, he first raced in 125s but he really seemed to burst onto the scene in 2000, when he won the season’s first 500cc race in spectacular style, entertaining the fans, and his rivals, all year long.

His ability to go faster by sliding the rear of his bikes has its roots in speedway riding and has earned him the nickname of The Slide King.

After the launch of the movie "Faster" in 2003, Garry has managed to excite an entire generation of MotoGP fans, taking in the U.S one of its biggest Fan Club.

His seniority in the circuits has earned him recognition throughout the press and his very personal way of riding is strong and determined with great fighting spirit.

Garry runs for passion but in the first place for victory. This year he definitely returns where he belongs to: MOTOGP.
