From a very young age, Peter Hickman (or Hicky as he is often called) watched the likes of Casey Stoner and Chaz Davies compete in the 125cc Superteen Championships at the age of 13. Peter's Dad had also raced bikes alongside the likes of Kenny Roberts in the 70's until a serious accident curtailled his career in 1979, Hicky senior was desperate not to let his son follow in his footsteps, but even that didn't distill the sheer determination of the young Hicky to follow his dream of becoming a motorbike racer.
Without his Dad knowing, Hicky saved up his pocket money for a whole year at the age of 13 and bought himself his first bike but had to hide it behind the house so that his Dad didn't find out. Hicky later described it as "a pile of parts in a wheelbarrow" but after realising he had no idea how to build it he had to confess about it to his Dad. So after some persuasion Peter's Dad gave him the help he needed to start the realisation of a dream, to race motorbikes.
Hickman's determination of being a racer has led him from his own self funded team to a prestigeous ride with GB Moto in 2013. His quick rise through the classes is proof alone that Peter Hickman is a talented and determined rider.
