About the project
Hello! My name Is Scott Wilson, I am 26 years old from Lydd in Kent and I am a competitive and demonstration trials rider.
I will keep this part short! - I am looking for help this winter to get my 2017 season started by hopefully getting some additional funding to purchase much needed equipment- Bikes and parts!
Your support would help me compete nationally and internationally, representing the UK all over the world - and would hopefully help me bring back some trophy's and titles!
What I need and why -
For a season I would require two complete bikes. One would be used solely for competitions, it will always be in perfect competition and ready to go. The second bike will be used for training meaning i can train harder knowing that my competition bike will not be damaged and out of use, it will also act as a spare bike at competitions, meaning that if for some reason my competition bike is damaged at an event, I will be able to carry on and not retire as I have a second bike to use.
Usually I would sell my previous seasons bike to help fund buying my bike for the new season ( I can usually fund 50% of a new bike like this) however the 2016 season proved to be very tough and the bikes I used were not as strong as hoped for, meaning by the end of the season they have both broke and are unusable and unsellable.
I am currently trying to save as much money as I can to fund my competition and training for 2017 ( I receive no funding from any governing bodies or groups) and I recently started my own small business meaning I have no additional savings or funds to buy any equipment.
