Talan Skeels-Piggins

Motivational speaker, winner of the 600cc paraplegic class at the Di. Di. World Bridgestone Cup, GB Paralympian and Founder of The Bike Experience.

At the start of 2003 Talan was an active PE Teacher and ex Royal Navy Lieutenant.  On March 8th 2003 he suffered a motorcycle accident, which shattered his back and fractured his neck in several places.  Initially just given 30% chance of survival and told to expect a hospital stay of 2 years, Talan was left paralysed from the chest down.  Eight days after the accident he set myself the goal of learning to ski, getting into the GB Team and competing at the 2010 Winter Paralympics.   This has since happened, and Talan is now part of the world’s first privately funded disabled race team. 

This truly remarkable team was thought up by Talan in 2011.  The team’s first solo race with the approval of the ACU was in 2012 with Club Thundersport.  Since then, the team has raced in Assen in a 3 hour endurance race as well as few select races in the UK.  2014 saw the team sponsored by McMillan Williams Solicitors Ltd and for the first time, race a full season with 3 national racing clubs.  Following on from the success of 2014, the team expanded for 2015 to include 2 new riders:  1 paraplegic and 1 above knee amputee.  With 2016 around the corner, watch this space for more exciting racing ahead!
