How complex can you make an iPhone game?

Am mulling over whether to hire a developer to create me a game for the iPhone/iPod.

Basically I want to create a racing game. It would have a user controlled bike racing against 2/3 computer controlled bikes. Ideally on multiple dirt tracks, each one harder than the other. Since I don't know anything about programming, I thought I'd better get some advice from others more in the know than me. Allowing me to find out what I have to work with before looking around for a developer & taking it to the next stage.

Is what I want to do possible at all? If not, what would I need to cut out/scale back from my initial idea in order to make it playable?

Many Thanks, James..

Well, you didn't say anything about what it should like and how it should work, but generally: of course it's possible. If you want to make it look like the latest PS3 game, then no it's not possible.

Either way it's a lot of work for anyone, so I hope you're prepared to spend a lot of money, or spend a lot of time learning.
