    • Synopsis
    • Four superbikers battle it out at 200 MPH, riding through tortuous conditions and 0risking life and limb at every race to become the one true champion …
      I, Superbiker is a high octane feature documentary that intimately follows the great British hope, Tommy Hill, a fearless racer who cheated trackside death at 14 years old. His parents have sacrificed their home, holidays and financial security to support his burning ambition to be Britain’s number one superbike racer.
      I, Superbiker tracks James Ellison, the northern heartthrob who came second in 2009, and has to win to save his career. Newly married to his American sweetheart, he too has made incredible personal sacrifices to race, and now permanently lives in his mobile trailer in the remote Lake District to fulfil his dream of lifting the coveted crown.
      The documentary also looks at Gary Mason, the ex privateer now racing on a factory Kawasaki bike who has everything to prove and everything to lose. The oldest racer amongst our characters, his career has been on a downward spiral, and this could be his last race unless he can pull in the results. And finally, Josh ‘Bad Boy’ Brookes, the black leather clad Australian out to steal the crown from the British hopefuls. The racer that arrived from Down Under in 2009 was quickly banned for reckless behaviour, causing untold carnage at many race meetings.
