Four-time Superbike World Champion Carl Fogarty has teamed up with specialist insurance broker Bikesure to promote the brand for the next 12 months.

Fogarty will appear in adverts and videos for the broker, while fans can win a signed crash helmet and gloves in an exclusive competition on the Bikesure website at 

Gerry Bucke, general manager of Bikesure, said Fogarty remained a hero for a huge number of bikers, and his determination to be the best would fit well with the broker's desire to offer the best cover at affordable premiums for virtually anything on two wheels.

"We're dedicated to offering cover on anything from a moped to high-performance sports bikes, street bikes and imports, and with Carl's profile he can help us to stand out from the crowd," he added.

"We're all excited to be working with one of the all-time greats and we'll be updating our website with new videos throughout the year."

Fogarty, renowned for his aggressive high-speed cornering, said he was looking forward to supporting the broker in 2012.

"I've been very impressed with how Bikesure put a little more thought than many brokers into the types of risk it will cover," he added.

"Bikesure offer cover where many would just give you a straight 'no', including heavily modified bikes and superbikes. The staff there also know their bikes, which is important for many people who have specific requirements."
