Tim Neave, from Lincolnshire, started riding bikes at the age of 13. Born into a farming family, Tim, and twin-brother Tom, was bought their first 50cc quad bike at the age of nine, but didn’t get on two wheels till four-years later.
Tim began his racing career in 2010, competing in the ACU Junior Flat Track Championship and won all but one race that season. Remaining in the flat track scene, Tim joined Suzuki alongside Peter Boast and finished sixth in championship that year.
His flat track career took a turn following a crash in 2012 which left him with a broken collarbone, forearm, rib, a punctured lung, and a tear in his spleen. Tim didn’t race for two months, but still managed fifth overall in the championship.
After racing flat track, Tim moved across to circuit racing, and has been a regular podium threat in the Superstock class. For 2022, Tim joins the McAMS Yamaha supported Edwards 1902 Superstock team aboard the Yamaha R1. After topping the two pre-season tests at Snetterton and Silverstone, Neave is excited for the season ahead.
