It's been a while since we (North Mids district) did a rider feature. Usually, it's someone who is sadly no longer with us so this one is a first in that the subject is very much alive and kicking. It's also a first in that the rider in question wrote it himself. New member Andy Clark wanted to tell his story of racing, weight gain, weight loss and (hopefully) return to racing.

Thanks so much for this Andy. It's inspiring stuff. We look forward to seeing you on the start line this year.
