Matt achieved some incredible results in the first half of 2013 where he set a new lap record at Brands Indy in Rd 1, received the prestigious Pirelli “Merit” award as “Rider of the Day” by Fred Clarke at Knockhill and he often achieved top 6 fastest lap times throughout his rookie year. Based on these performances and his obvious potential, Matt should take the credit for starting to attract such a great group of corporate and personal sponsors for 2014!


Impressive stuff considering that his first time ever on a road/race bike was at a rookie race school in 2011. Before then, he competed in Motocross from the age of 8 to 18 yrs old at club level and stepped up into the 450 category at national level.


Unfortunately, Matt’s 2013 season came crashing to a halt when he got tangled with another rider at the Brands Hatch GP round. Matt hit the ground very hard, shattering his collarbone in 4 places and, due to surgery complications, ended his season prematurely.


We believe Matt’s obvious speed, combined with the experience gained in 2013 will warrant a title challenge in 2014.


Now fully recovered, he is training incredibly hard throughout the winter and, as a keen Motocross rider, he is out on track training every week.


2014 - With a bit of luck on his side for a change and now with a great team of people supporting him, we are hoping for a very exciting and rewarding year.
