MCA Leicester to host VIP evening with James Ellison

Motorcycle accessories retailer MCA ( will be hosting an exclusive evening with British Superbike legend James Ellison on Wednesday 10 September, just weeks after a dramatic high-speed crash at Brands Hatch threatened to cut his season short.

Taking place at the company’s Leicester shop at 7pm, the event will give 15 competition winners and members of the press the chance to meet Ellison, pictured here, right, with Chris Walker, and hear him talk about how he recovered from a broken femur and hip surgery to return to the track within a month.

He’ll also be answering their questions, talking all things gear, dishing out the latest news from the circuit and offering an insight into life inside his race team Lloyds British GBmoto Kawasaki.

The VIP Q&A session will be followed by complimentary food and drink and plenty of exclusive offers on kit just for guests.

Dan Hall, MCA’s store manager, said: “All of us at MCA are mad-keen bikers and we’ve supported James throughout his career. So we’re all looking forward to welcoming him into the shop and giving our customers the chance to meet him in person.

“The fact that he managed to get back on his bike so soon after that huge crash just shows what a driven, determined rider he is. Having him here is going to be a big moment in MCA’s 65-year history.”

The huge crash on 20 July forced the 33-year-old to miss three races as he underwent intensive hyperbaric pressure chamber and physiotherapy rehabilitation. After returning to the track during the Bank Holiday weekend but struggling due to the pain, he aims to race at Donington Park this weekend.
