Stanley Woods, TT (Tourist Trophy) rider

Date(s): 1926

Scope & Content: Stanley Woods was born in Dublin in 1903. He was the most successful pre-war rider and the first rider to achieve the distinction of 10 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) wins.

Woods rode in 37 TT races between 1922 and 1939, starting on Cotton motorcycles and then becoming one of the Norton factory Dream Team which dominated the early 1930s TT races. A successful professional rider, Woods moved to rival factory teams who could offer the most competitive machines such as Moto Guzzi and Velocette.

Woods was an extremely competitive rider finishing either in the top 6 places (usually first or second) or retiring because he had pushed his bike, such as the German DKW or Swedish Husqvarna, beyond its limits.
