Carl Fogarty is set to make his return to competitive riding by taking part in the Iron Butts challenge later this year.

Foggy has agreed to head up a celebrity team in the event, which aims to circumnavigate the Mediterranean Sea in 15 days, covering a distance of 7,500 miles in the process.

The event is open to all riders, and a TV programme charting the progress of all entrants is in the pipeline. For more information, visit the UK-based Iron Butts website.
