Riders, Sliders & Skidders - 02nd June 2018

After a break of three weeks Ride & Skid It returned with a flat track experience day. The morning weather was quite misty making sports photography a bit of a challenge and it brightened up just in time for the afternoon sessions. There were a couple of celebrity riders present in Phil Collins and Rick English.

Phil Collins

Phil finished runner-up with England in the World Team Cup final in 1984 and third in 1985. He was British Under-21 Champion in 1978 and his transfer from Ellesmere Port to Cradley Heath in 1978 for £15,000 was a record transfer fee at the time.

Rick English
