Jamie Robinson was born into a 2-wheeled world due to a motorcycle obsessed father who chopped up an old Garelli moped and taught his son to ride at 3½. After growing up watching his Dad race around tracks like Cadwell and Mallory Park on his 500cc BSA Gold Star, Jamie swapped his dirt-bike gear for racing leathers and joined his Dad racing the asphalt tracks in 1992. Going on to race in British, European and World Championship events, as well as the road courses of the Isle of Man TT and recently Pikes Peak, Jamie now usually wears adventure gear as he takes to the hills for his next adventure.
