Triumph launches 2013 Young Guns search

Triumph has today launched its 2013 Young Guns talent search to find the next generation of promising young riders to take part in this year’s competition to win a factory supported ride within the 2014 Triumph Triple Challenge.

Established to find the UK’s race stars of tomorrow, the Young Guns scheme is open to all amateur ACU-licensed riders aged between 15 and 20. Ten lucky riders will be selected to take part in the 2013 Triumph Young Guns scheme, with each contestant receiving the opportunity to be mentored by key industry figures on the core skills needed to succeed in the world of professional motorcycle racing.

Successful applicants to the Young Guns scheme will be provided with a number of tailored training sessions throughout the year, delivered by a series of industry experts, focusing on issues such as personal fitness, racecraft, bike set-up/development and marketing/promotion.

Following these sessions, the ten riders will be assessed by a panel of judges including a professional rider, race team manager, MSVR management and senior figures from Triumph, to whittle the field down to the three Young Guns finalists. The finalists will then go head-to-head on the track, with the overall winner of Triumph Young Guns 2013 announced in October.

"We’re really excited about the third year of the Triumph Young Guns. Last year’s scheme had a very strong field of riders and I am sure that 2013 will be no different," said Triumph boss Guy Masters.

"The Young Guns competition is designed to find and nurture the next wave of racing stars and our 2011 winner, Chrissy Rouse, performed well last year in the Triple Challenge finishing third overall in his first year in the championship.

"Last year’s Young Gun’s winner, Tom Oliver will be looking to stamp his own mark and progress his racing career in this year’s Triumph Triple Challenge.”

The deadline for entries to Triumph Young Guns is Monday 19th April, 2013. Application forms can be obtained via the Triumph website
