Name: Mathew Waldron
Occupation: Business Owner
Home town: Warrington
Riding history: Started riding at the age of 17 on an Suzuki RG125 FUN
and then progressed onto an Aprilia RS250 and a Suzuki GSXR600 SRAD
before doing trackdays. I became an instructor in 2005 with No Limits
but didnt start racing until the end of 2012. Since then I have
competed in: Thunderpsort GB, No Limits Racing and the Triumph Triple
challenge and picked up podiums at each of these clubs on board a
Triumph in the 600 classes. For 2015 we are running Superstock 1000.
First racing hero: Valentino Rossi, same age as me and therefore I
have grown up in his era. Ridden all types and makes of bikes and
continues to reinvent himself no matter what or who comes along.
Biggest riding influence: The people around me. Of course we have our
heroes but the biggest influence are the people in our day to day
lives. The people that tell you to do your first trackday, then to go
racing, the people you ride with and of course in turn this makes you
a better, safer, and faster rider.
Favourite circuit: UK - Oulton Park, European - Portimao
Best biking moment: Nothing I believe will ever come close for me
personally than the two 2nd place finishes in the Triumph Triple
Challenge Cup at Cadwell Park in 2014. Standing on the podium twice in
the warm sunshine in front of 1000's of spectators on the grass
banking will stay with me forever :)
