The Story of Miles Holden—A Racer

—Miles came to us an incredible story, a love for and he was on a mission to race a Ural. giving Miles his own forum on the blog and this is his first in what will hopefully be a of bench racing, stories, and (IMWA)

My name is Miles and I have been living in America for over twenty now. I moved here the UK at the end of a long career working for the 6 years ago i was injured while in Afghanistan.

 Subsequently I was medically and went from being super busy, to nothing… at all.

My severe PTSD and injuries stopped me from just about anything. I into depression, lived two … attempts and I’ve some very long stays. Eventually, with the help of things slowly began to together. Although still a life was beginning to making sense again, yet I still something to get excited about.

Something that made my flow and get my heart pumping.

I up in the UK watching racers like Grant, Barry Sheene and Roberts. They were the I pretended to be when I was a kid on my big wheel. So, it was no to me when motorcycle racing became my therapy of choice. not surprising that much my big wheel, initially I would to 3 wheels instead of 2. I had a lot of sidecar racing in Europe and to watch and connect with the at the Sidecar Racing Association

 I was completely hooked, and before I was racing a Formula 1 sidecar and a P2 sidecar. Of course, it was only that I should carry my of sidecars on to the street as well, and enters my Ural Patrol. As as I saw it—in all of its orange camo the show room I knew she be mine.

I live in Ontario, Ottawa, and the winters can be pretty and snowy. Certainly not motorcycle but I would not be thwarted. I rode my Patrol almost every day winter and loved every of it. The local community was a bit at this “war vet” in a tent in a big field all winter, and a motorcycle! And no ordinary motorcycle, an 3-wheeled one.

If I went anywhere I would to allow for an extra hour, so that I could answer all the that people would wherever I went.

While with the Vintage Road Association (VRRA), I asked if the could be included as a ‘replica’ and answer was “no”. However, the told me that if I went all the rules and addressed each then the technical committee consider it.

 The VRRA very open minded it and gave me every opportunity to my case.  It took three and much rule following, and retro fitting, but I am proud to say this year I will be the Ural as a solo 1957 replica.

I never quite understood why all the road racing sanctioning did not accept the Ural as a replica. all, we aren’t talking a 70′s Honda CB or Kawi ZX. No, we are about a design that has changed little since the 1940′s.

Surely, if any bike be a replica, this would be it.

The Road Racing Association kudos for keeping their and allowing the bike to run.

I no fantastic goals of breaking any records, winning any races or a massive sponsorship deal no…  worth a try, right ?). But for fun and spectator support I think our Ural community can compete anyone! The season is fast and I will update with as I go.

If anyone would like to what mods needed to be ( or rather…’retros’), I can let you know in my next it is worth noting that is no other sanctioning body—I in NorthAmerica that has allowed a to race in road racing events. I know of some trial types but not circuit

It follows that if the solo is allowed, then surely a racing type would be allowed in the P1 category. Anyone interested? the next project if this season with this iconic bike goes

The pictures show the almost race bike. The forks are to be changed and I am looking for a ‘period fairing, although the fairing is not

Cheers, I will let you know how go…
