Graham Beamish

Charlie and Oliver’s Grandad. A big name in the motocross world. One of the youngest riders ever to represent his country in the Moto-cross of Nations, Graham was a top flight racer for many years through the 1940′s and 1950′s. He went on to be the British importer for Suzuki off road motorcycles and helped many of the top riders of the 1970′s and 1980′s whilst running the Suzuki Moto-cross Team. Having been a huge character and well respected within the motorcycle industry he sadly passed away in 2006, aged 73.

Graham is sorely missed by the family and would have loved to be watching his Grandsons forging their own careers in moto-cross.


Steve Beamish

Charlie and Oliver’s Uncle. Steve was a top British rider for many years during the 1970′s and 1980′s. Having won two British Schoolboy Championships he went on to ride for Suzuki and Honda in British and World Championships for a number of years as a professional moto-cross rider. Steve also made a name for himself in France, winning many International race events.
