Remembering Winnie Wright.

Wow , it is hard to believe that it’s 13 years already since the big man sadly left us , everyone has there own personal memories of Winnie Wright and I am sure that all of those memories are big positive ones about one of the nicest blokes that they ever met.

It has been said so many times before about what a great guy Winnie was , and it makes me smile still when I hear people speak about him ,and people really do still talk about Winnie all the time , he was that much of a legend in our sport .
He was pretty much known throughout the European and the USA race scenes , if you went to a Euro race with Winnie he would get stopped by people all the time, it would take you forever to get anywhere haha.

“Lee Alexander- More people like Winnie in the world would make it a much better place……… great memories

Geth Shooter- A true legend from UK BMX racing.
Sorely missed.

Tom Lynch- Hey gave us so much, good times always rolled. RIP never forgotten.

Gary Wallis- Killer smile , top bloke”

Winnie was always immaculately kitted out and always had the cleanest and shiniest bike and race kit ,much to the dismay of hotel cleaners , as his bike would quite often get washed in hotel baths and polished with the hotel towels haha.

Although in this pic below he is not looking so fresh haha , proper early days this one.

Anyway I will not go on for to long , so lets remember all the good times we had with Winston Wright ,and I myself will be going out tonight to raise a glass or two in memory of our good friend.
Here are a few more pics , I especially like the one with the “Fresh Prince” look!!.

If anyone has any cool photos of Winnie , send them to us and I will start a thread on the forum ….BMX Legends.

Miss you mate x
