Look how cute you were! Stick with the full face though, we wouldn't want anything to spoil your beauty 😁

You had to have an open face coz your cheeks wouldn’t fit in a full face

I remember you having a steering damper on it to assist the rear shock πŸ˜‚

Check out the Malaguti! RCX10 or 12 by the looks of it. What year would this have been?

Oh what a cutie you were, definitely got your looks from your mum

What a cute kid you were πŸ˜†πŸ₯°

If only we could see inside your HJC to see if you still do it!!! 🀣

Remember watching you at 3 Sisters years ago on the Super Moto πŸ‘πŸ†πŸ†

You don't look any older now 🀣

Visiontrack Ducati racer, Christian Iddon is in a great position as the Bennetts British Superbike Championship enters the β€˜Showdown’ period of the season. The Stockport rider sitting third of the eight riders who now get a shot at the overall 2021 Title.

Iddon converted a modest starting position, tenth on the grid, in to a podium in Race One around Silverstone’s National layout. Climbing to sixth position in the opening two laps, a brief safety car period halted his charge temporarily. The former Supermoto Champion claiming another two places shortly after the restart. By lap nine Christian was comfortably settled in to fourth spot, as a red flag on the final lap promoted him to second at the finish.

Iddon started fifth in Race Two, and was well in contention for another podium spot when contact with another rider led to a big moment that dropped him out of the leading group. Settling in to seventh place by lap fourteen, Christian would remain there until the finish.

Race Three was red flagged with fluid on the circuit, and starting twelfth at the restart, a great opening lap saw Iddon up to eighth. There was a brief foray up to fourth spot by lap seven, but Christian would settle for sixth at the flag and, more importantly, third place in the β€˜Showdown’ title race.

Christian said; β€œI struggled in the early part of the weekend, didn’t really get going again until Qualifying.

β€œQualifying wasn’t fantastic as in position on the grid, but it was when I began to gel with the bike.

β€œThe first Race we finished second, which was great, from the fourth row of the grid. It was a fantastic result, great to be back on the podium. Starting to feel well with the bike again.

β€œFor the first of Sunday’s races we’d changed the bike, and I’d lost a lot of sensation with it. Our tyre life dropped off dramatically compared to what we’d had previously. But we were still in podium contention when a collision with another rider caused me to have a very large moment which thankfully we got away with, but it dropped me out of the group and I wasn’t able to fight for the podium.

β€œIn the final Race we reverted back to the previous settings, I immediately felt much more racy, got caught out just a touch with a cold tyre on lap one and ended up on the wrong side of a rider who hadn’t seen me, it wasn’t their fault but I got ran out of track, I was off twice in first couple of laps an dropped back to fourteenth.

β€œ[After the red flag] at the restart, I managed to drag my way forwards and finish sixth. It was a little bit of a frustrating way to end the weekend because I definitely think there was a podium on the cards. But myself and Tommy Bridewell [Ducati] had a little bit of argy-bargy and it cost us a little bit too much time which was a shame as I think there really was a podium chance which would have rounded it off nicely.

β€œWe made big strides compared to last year at Silverstone and I’m feeling good running in to the Showdown. It’s all to play for. It’s a super strong line-up, the top eight riders, we know it’s going to be difficult, we’ll give it our best as we always do.

β€œA big thank you to all of my sponsors and supporters who have assisted me to get to this point, we now have a one-month run to the finish. Let’s see how we get on.”

Christian now heads to Oulton Park in Cheshire, for his β€˜home’ round of the BSB Series, over the weekend of the 24-26 September.

Sincere condolences Christian to you and your family we owe grandads generation a great debt of gratitude without them we wouldn't have the freedoms we are accustomed and privileged to have take heart that he is now at peace with his beloved wife together for eternity RIP Bob Stoodley πŸ’™

So sorry to hear your sad news Christian. I’ve loved listening to Grandad’s predictions for the BSB rounds and will miss them. He was truly an amazing gentleman x

The golden generation you must be so proud of him and his achievements. I'm sure he was just as proud of you as well. RIP true hero.

What a great man. Such honour and bravery. Words cannot express how much we owe to him and his fellow soldiers. Loved his thoughts and honesty about you and your achievements Christian. ❀

#askgrandad Legend hero and the best grandad ever

Sorry for your loss Christian. I loved the videos you would put online of him, it was obvious how proud he was of you. Even if he thought Brookes would beat you to the title. All the best mate.

So sorry to hear this sad news. It has been an honour to be Bob's postie over the last few years. A true hero and gentleman. My condolences to you and all the family x

Sorry for your loss! What an incredible life story! I enjoyed his views on the racing πŸ‘πŸ»

So, so sorry to hear about Grandad. A true Hero!! Much love to you and all the family at this difficult time. πŸ’“

Condolences to you and all your family...from all the bikers in Poynton, Cheshire.

Condolences to your family Christian. May he Rest In Peace and may your thoughts of him bring you far more happiness than sadness.

Thinking of you all fella, I’ve said it many times we need to remember and be thankful for the bravery of grandad and those young men who went to war to give us the freedom we all have today

So sorry! Always loved his predictions and feedback on the races. Whenever you won, my first thought was always Grandad!! πŸ₯Ίβ€οΈ

Sorry for your loss Christian, condolences to you and your family. What a true war hero they all were!x

A true hero when the chips were down he did what had to do. Rest easy Bob πŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺ

So sorry for your loss, Rest in peace ‘Grandad’ x

Ask grandad because he has the knowledge was my favourite thing. Good night god bless sir x

Visiontrack Ducati rider Christian Iddon claimed his place in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship’s β€˜Showdown’ section of the season. Meaning he’ll be one of the 2021 title fighters.

Christian, from Stockport, was left with a mountain to climb when he took a tumble on the opening lap of Race One at Snetterton in Norfolk at the weekend. Iddon, left back in seventeenth place on the grid in Race Two, having not set a lap time in Race One, claimed eleventh place in Race Two.

Race Three saw Christian climb six places to finish fifth despite a red-flag stoppage as several rider fell as a result of Danny Buchan’s [BMW] bike went down on it’s own fluid.

The resulting points left Christian fourth in the Championship standings and with enough points to claim a Showdown spot with a round to spare.

Christian said; β€œNot my best weekend, I never though I’d be so happy to finish fifth. Really from the very first lap of Free Practice One it seemed like it just wasn’t at the races and that made it hard for the team to set the bike up well. I think we just got a little bit lost, and things just snowballed from there.

β€œWent in to the first Race and chose to use the harder of the two option tyres and it caught me out on the first lap, which was really, really disappointing. It just went from underneath me, absolutely no warning and I was dumped on my backside.

β€œSecond Race we again opted for the harder tyre. Simply because we didn’t have the data to know if the soft one was going to last the distance. It was a struggle of a Race. I got a reasonable start, moved up from seventeenth, and at one point was just about inside the top ten, but I lost a lot of feeling with the bike from half distance and I struggled to maintain the pace.

β€œIn the last Race we chose to go for the soft option tyre. I had a pretty good Race, I tried to be aggressive on the first few laps and that worked, then the red flags came out and we were down for a five-lap dash. A podium was on the cards, but after the weekend we’d had I rode just to get a solid finish.

β€œIt’s fantastic to be confirmed in the Showdown, we still have Silverstone to go until the Showdown starts for real. [Silverstone] typically not an easy track for the Ducati but I’m really looking forward to trying to turning that around.”

Christian is back in action this weekend as the BSB Series visits Silverstone, Northants, from the 10th – 12th September.
