My Name is Tony Bennett and I lost my dad to prostate cancer in 2010. Motorcycles have always been a passion of mine and something I enjoyed with my Dad while he was still with us.
The tragedy of losing my Dad has inspired me to set up Ride for Prostate. The aim of Ride for Prostate is to raise awareness of prostate cancer through competitive motorcycle racing and raising money for The Prostate Cancer Charity.
I will be competing in the Triumph Triple Challenge which is a support series to the British Superbikes. The series is covered by live TV on eurosport and watched by 8 million viewers. The series is also watched by hundreds of thousands of spectators at race circuits across the UK. This makes it a great platform to raise the awareness of prostate cancer. The season long campaign will be finished off by an end of year auction to raise a large amount of money for The Prostate Cancer Charity.

The Triumph Triple Challenge is an exciting Race series that runs as a support series to the British Superbike. The 170mph awesome Triumph Daytona 675 is used in the Series with very tight restrictions on changeable parts ensuring a close hard fought championship that showcases rider talent.
The series follows 8 Rounds of the British Superbikes and 1 Moto GP round with TV coverage at each event. The next series starts in March 2012 at Brands Hatch, Kent and looks set to be the most exciting season yet.
