Here at The People’s Bike our aim has always been to help young up and coming riders fulfill both their potential and the ambition of competing on the world famous Mountain Course. 

 

Our “Rising Star” project was introduced in 2017.  The aim of this project is to take a newcomer rider or a rider with little experience of the Mountain Course and to provide them with the support, guidance and stability that we can offer as an established team.  This in turn enables them to learn the course, improve their riding skills and self confidence and ultimately raise their personal profile within the race paddock as they have the backing of an established and respected team. 

 

The project provides a 3 year programme for the selected rider, guiding them through their newcomer year and helping them progress with the continued support and stability of the team through to year 3.  The learning curve for the TT course is between 3 and 5 years, our “Rising Star” project therefore offers the perfect opportunity for young up and coming riders to progress with no pressure to the TT if they so choose. 

 

The project was launched in 2017 with Stephen Parsons being our first Manx newcomer on this project.  Stephen or “Trev” as he’s known, finished in 3rd place in the Newcomers A race.  Returning to the team in 2018 Trev then finished in 3rd place in the Junior Manx GP and 2nd place in the Senior Manx GP.   

 

2018 also saw Matt Stevenson join the team alongside Trev.  In the most closely fought Senior Manx GP in years, Matt went on to win the race by 5 seconds from Trev.  A great achievement for the two young riders and best friends and an immensely proud moment for the team taking the top 2 steps in the Senior race. 

 

For 2019, Trev returns for his 3rd year with the team.  Alongside Trev we will be supporting Nathan Harrison a local Manx rider who has massive potential.  Whilst Nathan will work from his own awning we will be offering some financial support to him and will promote him as a Peoples Bike sponsored rider.   

 

We are always looking for new up and coming riding talent.  If you would like to be considered as our “Rising Star” for 2020 then please get in touch.
