Malcolm Rathmell Sport is one of the UK’s leading off road racing, trials motorcycle, accessories and parts businesses.
Operated through a large dealer network in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, the business has built close ties with many of the country’s highest-profile distributors. From tools to tyres and boots to bikes, they have access to everything you need in order to get out the door and on two wheels.
With roots in Malcolm Rathmell’s trials career, where he won six British Championships between 1971 and 1981, MRS started as importers of Aprilia trials bikes in 1991. They then took on Scorpa from 1994 to 1999 and now are the UK’s sole official importer for the Spanish-built trials & enduro motorcycle brand Sherco.
But MRS isn’t just about bikes – they offer the complete range of Gaerne Off Road Boots, Airoh Off Road Helmets, Kini clothing, Gibson Tyres, Galfer Brakes, AJP/Braktec, HZ/Neox Goggles, RQF, Clice Clothing, Technomousse, Forcefield Body Armour, Nau Helmets, Domino, Leonelli, and Ipone Oil.
Throughout the years, the business has developed a key team of riders from the lowest level up to the highest, including World Enduro Champion Stefan Merriman, multi British Trials Champion Steve Saunders, five-time British Trials Champion Graham Jarvis and a team of National and British Championship riders in trials and enduro.
