We are delighted to announce that Ben Wilson has re-joined the team for the 2017 season. After sustaining horrific injuries at the NorthWest 200 last year, Ben will join the team in an advisory capacity to their BSB rider - James Westmoreland and their BSS riders - Benjamin Currie and Andrew Irvine.
Ben has made huge progress with his recovery after multiple operations and surgery to fix his heavily damaged femur. He has now had the external fixator removed and is up on his feet on crutches. He still has a long road to recovery and whilst on the mend, Michael and Norma de Bidaph have welcomed him back to the team with open arms.
Ben will help all three riders throughout the season with data set-up and also passing on his extensive knowledge after riding both the Supersport and Superbike for the team in the past.
Ben Wilson - "It is really good to be back in the paddock but it wasn't in the way that i was hoping! Michael and Norma helped me so much last year from the moment i was injured all the way through until now. I wanted to give something back to show how grateful i am for their continued support.
It is great to be back working with the team and help Michael push the riders forward to achieve some strong results. I know i have a lot of knowledge of the bikes and the team to move things to the next level and hope we will have a very successful season."
