2015 TOP IndepenDenT MotoGP rider
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing
For years Mick has been following my career and been to Moto GP races all round the world always giving me support. I was also aware that he went to school with my dad and through him learned about his various global adventure motorbike trips including Argentina to Alaska.
In 2017 Mick had just finished riding from the UK to Thailand and at the end of his 3 months away came to watch the Malaysia Moto GP. We had a chat about his inspiring trips and his experiences, which you can on his Facebook Page (link below). I didn’t realise at that point he was planning his next trip already.
Hearing that Mick’s next trip was riding from Cairo to Cape Town and that he was going to try to raise some money for the official Moto GP charity Two Wheels for Life, I was happy to lend my support. The charity do fantastic work raising money to help fund the use of motorbikes for health workers in Africa meaning that they can travel to remote villages more easily.
With Mick’s route passing some of the projects I can’t wait to hear about his adventure and see the photos. Mick is also trying to raise funds for the Charity and any donations would be very much appreciated using this link.
Wishing Mick all the best for his trip and for raising funds for Two Wheels for Life!

#MotoE Jerez Test - 1st Place (Combined): I'm very happy with the work we've done today. We set a fast lap in the morning session, and I've felt better and better with the bike. In the afternoon we had mixed conditions on track, and it was good to have references for mapping and try out different setups to see what else we can work on for next March. In the last session there were a lot of puddles; we went out with slicks and were very competitive again. I'm very satisfied with this first test, as we have always been among the fastest riders and we have more and more knowledge about the bike. We know which direction to take and what to do to improve. I really enjoyed myself with my new team, and I'm looking forward to coming back to Jerez in March!
#MotoE Test Day 1 Jerez: I am happy to have completed my first laps on the MotoE bike. The first session was in the wet, so it was a good opportunity to compare it to the feeling in the dry conditions that we had later.
I am positively surprised with the handling of the bike and the way it has performed here at Jerez. We have to work out which steps we need to take to improve everything and evaluate the result of each step.
So far everything we have seen has been positive; now we need to analyse the work we have done on this first day and make a plan for tomorrow. We were in the top three for the majority of the day, now we have to work out a way to be the fastest, which is the objective.
