Steve Hizzy Hislop

Steve Hizzy Hislop Steve "Hizzy" Hislop was one of the most successful road & track racers of his generation with a talent that shone through on the most challenging road circuits and GP-style tracks. For several years, and against serious competition he circum-navigated the TT course at record speeds for the bikes available at that time.
For me; one of my lasting memories will be when Steve signed my copy of his autobiography while chatting idly about his most famous win in 1992 when he put a british bike back on top while riding the rotary-engined Norton 588 in the epic "White Charger" battle with Carl Fogarty.

In honour of a true champion of road & track.

The 10th "Hizzy" Memorial Run will take place on Sunday 26th August, starting out from Denholm in the Scottish Borders.

The first memorial run was organised by Alan Duffus in october 2003 following the tragic death of Steven on 30th July 2003 in a helicopter crash near the border town of Hawick.
The run was initially organised to help raise funds for two statues to be placed, one in Hawick and the other in the Isle Of Man, where Steven lived at that time. Due to the huge turnout on the day and requests for the run to become an annual event, this is what has now become one of Scotland's largest free motorcycle rideout's.

The bronze statues were put in place in 2005 and since then any funds raised have gone to various charities.

Organiser's tholiver@btconnect.com look forward to seeing you all on the day; both riders and spectators.
