It is with a very heavy heart that I have to say that I had a phone call this afternoon to inform me that Matt Evans who did the tea stop for us on BC1 had passed away this morning.

It would appear that he was riding the Isle of Man track on his blade when he left the circuit early this morning where he had gone to spectate with a friend.

RIP Matty

That is such terribly sad news.

I can remember seeing that picture and everyone raving that Matt had gone out of his way and made a great cuppa for the Bishops Castle attendees.

Thoughts are with family and friends.

Ride safe everyone.

Hi Nick,

I guess he was doing what he loved, but it's a terrible price to pay.

Please pass on the condolences of the entire group.

The picture you posted up is a fine memory. I hope his family and friends hang onto those.

Chris

Really sorry to hear this. My only knowledge of him was that he made a cracking cuppa, which makes him a sound guy.

My condolences to family and friends.

I only met him once, on BC1 where I took that picture of him. He seemed a really decent guy. RIP Matt, my thoughts and prayers go out to your family.

I only met Matty the once, on BC1, and he was a cracking bloke, even let me have extra biscuits.

I can't believe this has happened and can't imagine what his family must be going through. My thoughts are with them.

RIP mate.

Thanks for taking that pic Tony, Its a fantastic photo & I will be forwarding it to his family when the time is right.

That tea stop was very unique & I dont think anyone could have done it better, a one off & a tribute to the guy Clap

Thanks for posting Nick & Ellie.

Never had the privilege of meeting Mat.
He sounded like a top guy who really lived life to the full.
Putting everything into life and getting so much out of it too.

It is always sad to hear news of biker injuries and deaths and it really hits home when it is a friend.

Thinking of you and the others on here who knew Mat. It is a sad loss of a good friend.

Be careful out there everyone and live life to the full.
