John Crellin of Douglas was a civil engineer with the Department of Transport's design services division. He was a regular competitor in the TT and Manx Grand Prix (MGP) races (first competing in the MGP in 1978), and in his spare time was also a mountaineer, conquering six of the world's highest peaks. Sadly he was killed riding in the 2009 Senior TT race.
