Pete Middleton is truly a pioneer of British BMX. Hailing from Walthamstow, East London, Pete won the first EVER official BMX race in the UK back in 1979 at Brockwell Park. A few years later he won the first ever money prize given at a race at the Isle of Man and the first official UK Pro Money race at Ipswich.
Team-wise, Pete rode for Ace, Skyway, Mongoose and ASR.
In 1983 Pete placed 6th at the World Championships 14+ Open final against America’s best and another big win in the Superclass Trophy at the Olympia Champion of Champions in 84.
In 1985 Pete won the Pro Class at the Pleasurewood Hills Lowestoft International and was the winner at NBMXA British Championships at Derby. Pete also mentored and guided some of the best UK racers of all time including Sam Jarvis and Dylan Clayton.
Pete’s career spanned from 1979 to 86 with TV, magazines, and Kellogg’s appearances solidifying his mark on British BMX history and tonight we are proud to induct Pete Middleton into the British BMX Hall of Fame class of 2023 for the Pioneer Racer Category.
