Twelve times FIM Trial World Champion Dougie Lampkin is delighted to announce his association with one of the UK's leading specialist providers of personal accident insurance cover for off road riders - Totally Sports Insurance.

The North West based firm, whose parent company offers more traditional financial planning services and is governed by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), has been working hard behind the scenes to bring a regulated product to the off road market to offer peace of mind for riders who need to protect their income in case of injury.

Having endured his fair share of injuries during his long and illustrious career, Lampkin who will act as an ambassador for Totally Sports Insurance can speak from first hand experience. "Whilst we all love our sport, unfortunately riding bikes off road does come with its risks irrespective of what level that you ride at. I earn my living through being able to ride, so when I can't ride I can't earn money which is the same for most people who can't work when they have become injured as the result of an accident on their bike."

"I have got friends and family members who are self employed tradesmen." Dougie continued. "These guys rely on being able to work on a Monday morning to earn their living. To protect their income they have insured themselves in the past, but with the large American provider having withdrawn from this sector a few years ago it has been almost impossible to get cover."

"The guys at Totally Sports Insurance are passionate about sport and have used all their industry knowledge and expertise to create a package that will give riders the cover they need." Added Lampkin. "Also what makes them different is they are regulated, as before the people didn't really know if they were covered or not."

"For just a few pounds a week, it makes sense to ensure that people can pay their bills and look after their family if they are laid up as a result of riding or racing their bike at a weekend. We all like to ride hard and have fun on our bikes, but there is a serious side to it too." Ended Dougie.

A spokesperson for Totally Sports Insurance said. "We are obviously extremely proud to welcome Dougie to the fold, he joins fellow elite athlete Steve Peat from the World of mountain biking. Both Dougie and Steve are legends of their particular sports and are great ambassadors too, so we couldn't have chosen two better people to get this important message over to guys who ride each weekend, but have no protection in place."
