| Bibby Makes MGP Comeback
||Twenty Nine year old, Mike Bibby is to make a racing
comeback at this years Manx Grand Prix in the
Mike started racing five years ago, after a road bike
accident nearly ended with him losing a leg. The best
part of four years was spent recuperating from the
accident involving a wagon, which involved bone
transportation amongst other treatments.
|He started racing on an ex Jay Vincent RGV 250cc
Suzuki, before purchasing an ex Loctite Yamaha in the
shape of a TZ 250 D which is the machine he still owns
today and will race in the Manx.
He rode at the Manx Grand Prix for the first time in
1999, finishing ninth in the Newcomers Race.
Unfortunately he missed last year's event after an
accident at New Brighton where he broke his elbow.
Although now fully fit, he hasn't rode this mainly
because he doesn't want to pick up any injuries that
might stop him from competing in the Manx and because
he has been helping fellow Manx Grand Prix competitor,
Dan Stewart, with his MRO Championship campaign.
Mike tells us that he is hooked on the Manx Grand Prix
and riding the Mountain Circuit, and has little
interest in short circuit racing now.
Supporting Mike at this years meeting will be
Graphicsign, Carmetic Paint Work, John Stuart Motor
Cycle Parts, Britton Motors, Devonshire Service
Station, Dave Taylor Oil Boilers, Dave Owen and last
but not least his Mum!
He would also like to thank Norman from Silkolene,
Peter from Scott Leathers,
Andy from Shoei and everyone who helped in 1999 for
