 Bibby Makes MGP Comeback

Mike Bibby Twenty Nine year old, Mike Bibby is to make a racing comeback at this years Manx Grand Prix in the Lightweight Race.
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 the Manx.
