Michael Moulai Confirmed to ride Jack Valentine MV for Wilson/Collins at 2013 Manx Grand Prix

Moulai finished 9th in last year's Junior MGP Race and has a best placed 6th finish which he achieved in the Newcomers A race in 2009. He finished 13th in the Senior Manx Grand Prix in his debut year on the Mountain Course.

The 38 year old, now based in Lincolnshire, had an unusual history and was actually selected to represent New Zealand as a cyclist in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games but broke his back in a hand gliding accident that not only ruled him out of the Games but effectively ended his career in the process.

The Wilson/Collins outfit has four Senior Manx Grand Prix winners with Gary Carswell, Mark Parrett, Paul Duckett and Buddy Yeardsley all winning the blue riband race. The team has been participating in the Manx Grand Prix for over forty years and also holds the lap record for The Manx Grand Prix Senior Race - 122.208mph (18:31.45), which was set in 2005 by Alan Jackson, which he achieved from a standing start.

Commenting on the MV's participation, Des Collins said:

"Jack has been really helpful in supporting us with the project and I'm delighted that an MV will be appearing in the Manx Grand Prix. I'm also pleased to be backing a New Zealander as I have a huge affection for the place."
