More Tributes to Barry Sheene

I had only last week learned that Barry's condition was very serious, and had no idea that his death was that imminent. I don't know if it was planned or was cooincidence that during the rain delay (prior to the cancellation) of the Daytona 200, the Legends of Motorsports episode presented on SpeedTV featured one of his epic battles with Kenny Roberts.

Perhaps it is fitting that he passed away on the day following Daytona, where he had his horrendous 170 mph crash on the banking in 1975.
