Gareth Jones
Bemsee's Rising Star

Picture this:

You're 16 years old. Not old enough for a road bike.
Your father lends you his standard RGV250 racer for your first race.

What do you do? Potter around, and hope you don't come last?
Not if you're Gareth Jones. You win the race. Followed by a second place in the next race, then another win.
