Christmas Riders Annual Party

Back to overview

On Friday 6 December, all roads led to the sixth Christmas Riders Annual Party at Wilmslow Rugby Club in Cheshire, where ex riders from off-road and road racing gathered to talk about their careers and the great battles they had through the years.

Special guest of the evening was the American motocross legend, Chuck Sun, former Husqvarna and Honda factory rider, 1980 AMA 500cc National Champion and member of the 1981 Trophee des Nations winning American Team at Lommel Belgium. Chuck flew in from Las Vegas and gave a great interview, telling stories of his factory days and even racing in front of 100,000 people at Leningrad in a Russian 250cc GP.

Besides having fun, the guests were also raising money for Wings for Life by auctioning off various prizes such as a VIP Hospitality package for two people to attend the 2015 MXGP at Matterley Basin, Winchester, a signed David Bailey limited edition canvas and HRC race shirts. In total they raised just over £5,000 for spinal cord research.

We would like to thank Rob Bentham & Rob Kinsey for their ongoing support and the whole CRAP party crowd for helping to make the auction such a great success.
