Triumph has launched its Triumph Young Guns scheme for this season. After two successful years, Triumph is again looking for the next generation of promising young riders to take part in this year’s competition to win a factory supported ride in the 2014 Triumph Triple Challenge. Established to find the UK’s race stars of tomorrow, Young Guns entry is open to all amateur ACU-licensed riders aged between 15 and 20.

Ten riders will be selected to take part 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 will be provided with training sessions throughout the year, focusing on personal fitness, racecraft, bike set-up/development and marketing/promotion.

The ten riders will then be assessed by a panel of judges to whittle the field down to three finalists, who will then go head-to-head on the track. The three will be announced in October.

Guy Masters, general manager of Triumph said: “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.”
