First we had naked pictures of male BSB stars for a charity calendar, now we have a naked TT fanatic posing naked around the Isle of Man TT in a new 2015 biking calendar.
If you're still stuck for Christmas ideas for your biking mates, how about a calendar of journalist, artist and motorcycling enthusiast Rachael Clegg stripped bare at various points around the Isle of Man TT course?
It’s fine, it’s a TT calendar, just with an attractive naked lady on it, okay, and is the third one in the series. Rachael is also a friend of Bike Social and will be writing some stories for us soon.
The evocative ‘Milestones’ calendar features 12 images of Rachael - nude - taken around the TT course, each representing an historic racing story from the globally renowned road-racing event.
Rachael said: “My father and grandfather were TT racers so that course is so special to me. I wanted to celebrate some of the wonderful stories that form the race’s history so, for example, the ‘March’ image shows me in giant comedy glasses taking an eye test at Ballig Bridge. This is because it was here where Harold Daniell had a crash during practice in 1938. Yet in that year’s Junior TT Daniell smashed the 90mph record, in spite of the fact his eyesight was so poor he wore glasses under his goggles and was refused to serve in the army because of his bad vision.”
And, despite being the third Milestones calendar to be released since its conception in 2012, the 33-year-old from Rochdale whose dad and granddad were both TT riders, says its creation has still been a ‘character building and very funny’ experience.
Rachael said: “We took new pictures this year, which i am really pleased with. I was in a nasty hit-and-run accident before Christmas and knocked off my push bike so I wasn’t even sure we’d be able to make another calendar. But after lots of training to get my strength back we did it.
