The Venue: National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham
This year for the first time the Awards have been moved to co-locate with the W16 Exhibition at the Birmingham NEC (on the evening of the 4th October 2016). The event will be held at the spectacular Motorcycle Museum, conveniently close to the exhibition centre.
Your host for the evening
It's an Olympic year and our award winners will be flying high in good company—the evening will be hosted by one of Great Britain’s most famous Olympians, the one and only Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards.
Michael Edwards, better known as 'Eddie the Eagle', was the first competitor to represent the Great Britain and Northern Ireland team in Olympic Ski jumping. Eddie was working as a plasterer when he qualified as the sole British applicant for the 1988 Winter Olympics ski-jumping competition. He had previously represented Great Britain at the 1987 World Championships, and was ranked 55th in the world. Despite little skill for his sport, Eddie's heroic failures won the hearts and minds of the public: in 2016, he was portrayed by Taron Egerton in the biographical film Eddie the Eagle, and he remains one of the best loved athletes today.
