Meet our Knight-Riders - Grant "The Speed Racer" Newton



Meet Grant "The Speed Racer" Newton , one of our awesome Knight-Riders who will be taking on the Ride to Conquer Cancer this October; 

Why do you want to be a part of the Ride to Conquer Cancer?

I have had a lot of friends and family that have been affected by cancer and I wanted to ride for them. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a real impact will be made.

How often do you ride?

Never, I purchased a bike for this ride. 

What are you most worried about doing this 200km ride?

Pre-existing Injuries! 

How are you training / preparing for this ride?

Two practice rides per week and trying to hydrate as much as possible.  At this stage I am doing 50km’s in just under 2 hours. 

How do you think the Knight-Riders will go as a group?

We will be fine, we always work as a team and we will push each other over that finish line. 


Good Luck Grant, and we hope those pre-existing injuries don't slow you down!  Contribute to this history-making event with a donation to Grant. Funds raised in The MACA Ride to Conquer Cancer® will support ground-breaking, critical cancer research being undertaken at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, Western Australia’s premier adult medical research institute, investigating the genetic and environmental causes of a range of diseases.
