  • Roy Trigg (born 29 April 1943 Morden, Surrey) is a former motorcycle speedway rider. He was noticed as a teenager by the Wimbledon Dons management who signed him up but immediately loaned him out to lower league Poole Pirates. In 1964 the new Hackney Hawks promoter Len Silver signed him on a full transfer. He stayed with the Hawks for two seasons but was forced out of the team when Bengt Jansson was signed. After leaving the Hawks he spent a season with the Oxford Cheetahs before moving on to Cradley Heath where he spent the next five seasons. It was with Cradley he was threatened with a gun by Garry Middleton. Garry tried to forcefully dive under Roy but Roy saw him and slowed down, leaving Middleton to shoot straight past him into the safety fence. Middleton then went into the pits into his toolbox and pulled out a handgun. He had to be dragged from the pits to avoid further trouble.In 1970 he finished third in the British Speedway Championship final. For the last two seasons of his career Roy rode with the Newport Wasps. After he retired he emigrated to New Zealand.
