Hi, my name is Dougie Lampkin. My discipline is enduro. My friends call me Doug. I was born on 23 March 1976 in Silsden, UK. My special talent is playing golf. My philosophy of life is enjoy everything while you can. My favourite food is Mum's cooking and home-made pasta. My favourite music is the Red Hot Chili Peppers.


Dougie Lampkin is a trials bike legend. He is renowned throughout the world as the upstart who showed the big boys how it was done. Born into a family already steeped in motorbike history – his father Martin was the first ever trials world champion in 1975 – Dougie rode into the limelight in the late 1980s astride a trials bike that looked way too big for him on a BBC TV series in the UK called Junior Kickstart. Before long, Dougie had taken trials biking to a new level, both in terms of skill and public interest.

Dougie’s first major victory came at the European championships in 1993 and he has since accumulated a trophy cabinet most international sportspeople would struggle to match. In 2003, Dougie won his 12th individual world trials title – seven coming outside and five indoors.

Dougie then turned his hand to the discipline of Enduro and has competed in some of the sport’s toughest events, including the Red Bull Hare Scramble and Red Bull Romaniacs. His success is further testament to just how rounded and skilled a rider Dougie is and why he's held in such high regard.

Never one to turn down a unique challenge, Dougie added the record of continuously wheelie-ing the entire 37-mile (70km) Isle of Man TT course on September 25, 2016, in front of an audience watching live on Red Bull TV.
