Legendary workwear brand Dickies has announced that the winner of this year’s Dickies-sponsored wheel change challenge at the Motorcycle Live event at the NEC, will receive a brand new Kawasaki Ninja 300 motorcycle.
The event, which takes place from the 28th November to the 6th December, will host five contestants per day on the main Blackhorse stage, all vying to change the wheel on Mason Law’s championship winning bike in the fastest time. The stage, branded the British Eurosport Entertainment Zone, will be hosted by Steve Parrish and James Whitham and will feature a whole host of interviews and competitions throughout the duration of the show.
The unique Ninja 300 was a prize in this year’s UK Worker of the Year competition, an initiative run by the workwear brand and sponsored by Kawasaki. With the winner having the choice between the Ninja and a £5,000 holiday and picking the latter, it has allowed the stunning motorcycle to become a prize at the show.
Maurice Morton, sales and marketing director at Dickies, commented: “The Kawasaki Ninja 300 received great reviews throughout the year, as we promoted the UK Worker of the Year competition. When Katie (this year’s winner), said that she would like the holiday, we thought it would be fitting to put the prize up at the Motorcycle Live show. We look forward to seeing who will have the fastest hands in changing this year’s wheel. Someone is going to be riding away with a fantastic early Christmas present.”
This is the second consecutive year that Dickies will be sponsoring the wheel change challenge at the NEC. Similar to last year, each contestant will receive a Dickies goodie bag for their participation in the competition. The fastest time of each day will also receive Dickies Store vouchers, with the overall fastest time over the show winning the brand new Ninja 300 motorcycle.
