Meet a Motocross Legend

Members of motorcycle repair workshops, run from Dalton Mills, will get chance to rub shoulders with a Motocross legend next Wednesday.

Former Multi World Cross Moto Champion, Dave Bickers, will be visiting Renaissance Motorcycle Workshop in Unit 62 of the mill on 18th December.

Dave Bickers won two European motocross championships in 1960 and 1961, and was a member of British teams that won the Trophee de Nations in 1961 and 1962.

He is one of several high profile Motocross figures that have visited Renaissance since it was set up in the Clock Tower. Arthur Lampkin, also a member of the winning teams in'61 and'62, and Jeff Smith, who won two FIM 500cc Motocross World Championships have both previously visited the workshops.

Renaissance, which is based in Unit 62 in the ground floor of the Clock Tower, offer drop-in workshops for anyone interested in motorcycle repair and maintenance on a Wednesday until 9pm. See here for more information or call Roger Henderson on 07759 724123.
