Grant was a relative late starter into motorbikes proper compared to most, only taking it up in his early twenties, entering his first race back in 2000 and never looking back.

From this year Grant takes his hobby full time, joining Jarvis Husqvarna Racing and becoming the new Jarvis Signature Tours operator in Wales. Grant’s likely to be spending most days a week on his motorcycle!

By 2014 Grant was competing in events all over the UK from local club events in both the winter and summer series. From the annual Weston Beach Race, riding the sand dunes of Weston-Super-Mare onto the 24-hour Dusk till Dawn race.

Stepping it up a gear, he then competed in ‘The Tough One’. First time out managing a 3rd, moving up to a 2nd and then finally getting a 1st in the vet elite race.

By 2018 he’d progressed to Red Bull Romaniacs, silver class and finished way ahead of expectations.

‘2021 marks a fresh chapter as I take my passion onto the next level full time with Jarvis Racing and Jarvis Signature Tours’
