Bryan Wade

Bryan was born in Leeds, Yorkshire and became  world famous as a motocross rider.  He raced all over the world and won 5 British Motocross Championships, becoming the only rider to win all three classifications, 125, 250, and 500.   He was seen on British TV every Saturday afternoon in the 60’s and 70’s but, as Bryan will tell you, the most memorable moment in his international racing career was being taught to play pool in Los Angeles by the film star, Steve McQueen.

Bryan was a works rider for Greeves, Husqvarna, Suzuki and Honda before going on to run the Honda Motocross Racing School. In later years his business ventures included night clubs, restaurants and retail shops and he later moved with his family to Florida where he eventually “retired”. That was until he received a call from his old buddy, Terry Mills, filled with enthusiasm for “this incredible place Kota Kinabalu”.

One long plane ride and a week riding along miles of deserted roads through spectacular Borneo was enough to convince him that this was a biking paradise the world should get to know.  Wadie, as he’s affectionately known, now resides in Sabah and runs Borneo Biking Adventures.
