Tony's First Ride


TONY OAKSHOTT (and wife Miriam inset)


This was not my first ride but itís the first pictures I have from my biking career. I rode the Wall Of Death for two and a bit yearís and these are the only pics I have of me back then. The wall was owned by Tommy Messham snr who was based in Birmingham. I learnt to ride the wall when it was sited on Clarence pier Southsea for a season.

I then travelled around the UK the following year then on to Ireland to the RDS in Dublin and a few other venues. Havenít done it since way back then but have been having thoughts about calling my mate Ken Fox, who I think owns the only working wall in the country now, so watch this space I might just do it again for charity if the price is right!!!
