Over the recent months I have been putting together my own team for 2009 but at this stage the funding has fallen short and it is unlikely that I will be on the grid for the first round, keep coming back for the latest news! feedHeadlines

Football Match


For anyone living in Leicestershire who would like a laugh at my football skills then this might be your ideal Sunday afternoon. Dan Cannell has organised a charity football match between the Leicester City Legends and the Air Ambulance racers which will be held at the Hinckley Utd football ground on 29th March, kick off is at 1.30pm and entry is only £2 with all proceeds going to the Air Ambulance charity. I hope to be lining up with Aaron Zanotti, Alistair Fagan, Kenny Gilbertson, Bruce Wilson, Sam Middlemass and various other local club racers. Unfortunately we have play against the likes of Steve Walsh, Matt Elliot, Gary McAllister, Dean Thomas, Tom Naughton, Muzzy Izzet and Neil Lennon amongst others. (all legends!)

This whole thing has been arranged by Dan after he needed the Air Ambulance following an horrific accident, "This game is happening because the charity is close to my heart, my accident outside the Axe And Compass pub left me with 2 punctured lungs, 2 broken bones in my face, broken left arm/wrist/hand, shattered upper right arm, broken left leg and a pin in my hip. I have 5 pieces of metal in 3 limbs, so far we have raised over £2300 at a charity trackday and I really want to raise more!"

Raffle prizes have been donated by the Honda UK race team, the Honda Ron Haslam Race School and local motorcycle manufacture Triumph will also be supporting the event.

Out of Steam!


Yesterday I entered the Desford 10k running race and finished in 74th place, there was around 500 entries and I was hoping for a top 50 finish but after a week of running and gym work I didn't have the legs towards the end of the race and had to slow my pace right down. After starting the race at sub 6 minute miles I was confident that I could finish in around 36 minutes but at 9kms I had to stop due to stomach cramp but walked to the line in 38 minutes. I will be back running today and then to David Lloyd Fitness club.

2009 not looking good!


After months of trying to secure funding for the 2009 championship it is looking highly unlikely that I will make the grid on a competitive bike at the first round, I will continue my efforts and I hope to have some more positive news soon.

Since last year I have continued to train hard so that I will be ready to race, competing in local running races for Birstall running club, cycling and my daily trip to the Fitness by David Lloyd gym. As you can see in the galleries I married my girlfriend of over 9 years Susie at Rothley Court Hotel in Leicester, other than the racing, life is great!

CJ Dinner


£50'000 Raised

The second annual Chris Jones Riders Fund dinner was held last weekend, 6th December at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham. The event once again was a massive success and with various donations, plus two very large cheques, which were presented to founder Pam Jones on the evening, the event raised a staggering £50'000 for the CJ Fund.

Just over 500 guests attended the evening and once again the food was fantastic, the entertainment by Trevor T kept everyone amused and the celebrity guests were scattered around the venue, all having a great time.

After providing various medical equipment since it began in 2006 the CJ Funds' next plan in to purchase a mobile medical unit, this will provide Chief Medical Officers Toby Branfoot and Cindy Horst with a permanent office at each round, it will transport all the medical equipment purchased so far including the X-ray machine and ice machine. It will also give the three BSB physios a base to work from at each round and a private place for Teams and Relatives to use if necessary.

A whole host of riders attended the Dinner on Saturday night and special thanks must go to them for giving up their time. Carl Fogarty, Troy Corser, Leon Haslam, Leon Camier, James Ellison, Eugene Laverty, James Whitham, Glen Richards, John McGuinness, Tim Reeves, Steve Brogan, Gary Mason, Dan Cooper, Dean Ellison, Tommy and Jimmy Hill, Simon Andrews, Chris Martin, Matt Hoyle, Tim Hastings, Robbie Brown, Victor Cox, Midge Smart, Tommy Bridewell, Kenny Gilbertson plus special star and surprise guests on the night James Toseland and Marco Melandri.

During the awards ceremony, which was presented by Roger Burnett, Leon Camier won the 'Determination' award, Jimmy Hill won the 'Up and Coming Racer' award, Glen Richards picked up 'Fans Favourite', John McGuinness - 'King of the Road', Tory Corser won 'Best International Racer', Simon Andrews and Tommy Hill both collected a special awards for their support and loyalty to the CJ Fund, crowd favourite James Toseland won '2008 Rider of the Year' and Carl Fogarty won the 'Commitment to Racing' award.

Three people were selected randomly at the final British Superbike round at Brands Hatch from the 18'000 raffle tickets that were bought over the season to win a brand new Honda 600. Steve Martindale from Honda UK drew Steve Samuel's name from the three winners and Steve has now become the proud owner of the Hannspree replica. Ciaran Donnelly and Carol Tatham both received BSB permanent passes for the 2009 season.

Tony Creaney, part of the Royal Marines have fully supported the CJ Fund all season in aid of the sponsored row they undertook in September, rowing on machines, 2400 kms, nearly 1500 miles, in support of the CJ Fund and also the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Children's Fund. On Saturday evening Tony presented Pam Jones with a cheque for £19'000 pounds after raising £38'000 over the season. He is very eager to try and bump this figure up to £40'000, please help him with this cause which stop at the end of December, if you wish to donate please visit -

Nino Pezzini and his wife Sue plus all the Racesafe Marshal's worked so hard for the Fund this season, collecting money at every event come rain or shine. Nino proudly presented a cheque to Pam for £9'000 on Saturday night.

The night ended perfectly with James Toseland playing on the keyboard and serenading Pam Jones on her Birthday and the night finished with a bit of music and lots of dancing and many happy faces!

The National Motorcycle Museum put on a fantastic 5-course meal for all the guests and they provided a brilliant venue for the Dinner and were more than helpful throughout the day and night making sure all the guests were happy.

Pam Jones, founder of the CJ Fund commented "I'm totally touched and moved by the support that we were shown on Saturday night and each time the CJ Fund holds an event it moves me more and more. The dinner was incredible and I think everyone who attended was suitable happy. Myself, Clive and Lucy would personally like to thank everyone involved helping and all those who attended on the night and made it possible. We are hoping to keep going from strength to strength and thoroughly appreciated all the support we receive."

Slicks in the Wet!


I had an outing on my J&L Aprilia yesterday at Bruntingthorpe and it was cold, damp and windy, I left the slick tyres in hoping that it would dry but the grip just dropped with the temperature. Still, top training for the good old British weather!

Season Over!


For the last few weeks there hasn't been anything to report and at this stage 2009 still isn't finalised so I can't give you any more information. As usual I have been working hard to put a good deal together and keeping on top of my training, J&L Aprilia supermoto has been out, a little bit of MotoX, daily cycle rides and my daily session at the Leicester David Lloyd health club. Regards, Dean

Charity calender


Earlier in the week I took part in a photo shoot at Phunky Fotos in Nottingham for Heart FM DJ, Amy Voce. When she discovered that her Dad had been diagnosed with advanced terminal prostate cancer, her family was left to face the heartbreaking reality that he had been given only two years left to live.

Two and a half years later, he's still fighting and hopefully will be for many years to come. So, Amy decided to do her bit to raise awareness of a disease which is one of the most common cancers suffered by men.

The concept is to produce and sell a calendar featuring (tastefully!) naked men from across the East Midlands upto Christmas with all the money raised going toward research and raising awareness into Prostate Cancer.
