Parsons To Lead The Peoples Bike Team’s 2018 Manx GP ‘Rising Star’ Project

Same as last year, Stephen Parsons will lead The Peoples Bike Team’s ‘Rising Star’ Manx GP project, as he aims to build upon an impressive Mountain Course debut from last August.

An accomplished exponent of Oliver’s Mount, Kendal based Parsons maiden Manx GP campaign from 2017 saw him fly the Peoples Bike banner high, producing a series of impressive performances in his first expedition upon the fabled Mountain Course.

A fine third in the Newcomers (A) race, the Junior race saw him finish a very creditable 17th, along the way lapping over the 117 mph mark.

Like many next generation roads competitors, determined to in years to come establish themselves as first class exponents of the TT Races, ‘Trevor’ is another example of how the Manx GP plays a vital role in helping bring through the stars of tomorrow.

This is also an applicable term to the ever hard working Peoples Bike team, who celebrated recently at TT 2018, ten years of participation at the TT/Manx Grand Prix.

Alongside the Manx ‘Rising Star’ team rider Parsons is also planning to next month, tackle the Southern 100 as he builds up his preparations ahead of his second Manx tenure.
