Wadie, as he’s affectionately known, raced all over the world and won Five British Motocross Championships, the only rider to win all three categories, 125/250/500cc. He was seen on British TV every Saturday afternoon in the 60’s and 70’s but, as Bryan will tell you, apart from winning championships and running his racing schools. One of the most memorable moments in his international racing career was being taught to play pool in Hollywood by Steve McQueen.
Bryan was a works rider for Greeves, Husqvarna, Suzuki, and Honda before going on to run the Honda Motocross Racing School. In later years his business ventures included nightclubs, restaurants and retail shops and he later moved with his family to Florida where he eventually “retired”. That was until he received a call from his old buddy, Terry Mills, filled with enthusiasm for “this incredible place Kota Kinabalu”.
One long plane ride and a week riding along miles of deserted roads through spectacular Borneo was enough to convince him that this was a biking paradise the world should get to know.
So Wadie now resides in Sabah and runs BorneoBikingAdventures.com
Sounds like a busman’s holiday. Wanta join him..??? I’m sure pensioners’ discounts could be arranged. 😉
