2014 Riders for Health Motorcycle Live Auction
Twelve incredible professional photographs, capturing historic moments from motorcycle racing in 2013 such as the one of John McGuiness at the Isle of Man TT, will be sold at Riders for Health’s charity auction on Sunday, November 24, at Motorcycle Live, Birmingham NEC.
The auction will raise money for Riders for Health – the official charity of MotoGP.
The images, mounted on meter-long boards, feature some of the world’s best road and track motorcycle racers from MotoGP, Moto2, World Superbikes, Supersport, British Superbikes and the famous Isle of Man TT. Each one will be signed by the rider in the photograph. See some of the wonderful images on Riders for Health’s website www.riders.org.
Hosted by popular Eurosport duo, Toby Moody and Julian Ryder, the auction will take place from 12.30-13.00 on Sunday, Nov. 24, on the Blackhorse Stage in the British Eurosport Entertainment Zone.

Visit the stand to find out more about the organization’s lifesaving work in Africa and support the cause by buying a pack of Christmas cards for your family and friends.
The auction at Motorcycle Live aims to raise money for Riders’ vital work in Africa. The organisation provides health workers in Africa with motorcycles and trains them in basic maintenance so that they never break down in the harsh terrain. With a reliable motorcycle, a health worker is able to reach up to six times more people living in remote rural communities with vital health care.
It is thanks to support from the motorcycle community all over the world that Riders for Health are transforming access to health care for over 14 million people across Africa.
Thanks especially to David Goldman (Gold & Goose), Graeme Brown (GeeBee Images), James Wright (Double Red Photographic) and Stephen Davison (Pacemaker Press) for donating their beautiful images, and to Motocom and Bennetts for sponsoring the auction.
