The Team

Our team has race experience at the highest levels going back over thirty years. With current MotoGP experience to go with many years of racing and preparation there is simply no other place that will treat your Ducati with more knowledge, care and respect.

Balding SpaldingNeil Spalding

Neil started riding bikes in 1972 and finally went racing in 1980, in a long club career he won two Club Championships, in 1985 there was BRC 1300 production and in 1994 KRC Supermono. In 1995 along with Alan Cathcart Neil persuaded SBK to run the European Supermono series. At the time this was the only race series to encourage Four-stroke prototypes. As Sigma Performance grew Neil entered a Ducati Supermono in several World Superbike support races winning races at Daytona and Donington.

In addition to running Sigma, Neil is technical editor of Motocourse, the leading Motorcycle racing and GP annual, is considered an authority on MotoGP technical development and writes for many motorcycle magazines worldwide on technical and racing subjects.

MauserBruce Maus

Bruce has been there done that and got the T-shirt. From early beginnings racing TZ250's in the north eastern United States Bruce went on to compete for the AMA 250 Championship and ultimately into 250 Grand Prix. The highlight of his career was winning the 250 AMA race at Loudon New Hampshire in 1980. Future world champion Eddie Lawson won most of the other races that year in that championship.

Bruce rode in Europe for a year then went Grand Prix racing as a technician. He worked for many riders including a spell with Team Roberts ultimately ending up building in tuning Scott Smarts bikes for his successful 250 British championship effort. Highlights included winning the AMA Championship as crew chief to Mike Baldwin while simultaneously competing, using the same bike, in all bar one of that years 500GP's; three years with Kenny Roberts first with Wayne Rainey in 250GP then building the famous Roberts nitrous oxide Formula USA TZ250 bikes. He was also on Joe Ehrlich's 250 GP Challenge and went on to be Martin Wimmer's Crew chief in his Aprilia 250 GP team. Bruce now concentrates his efforts as chief technician at Sigma Performance.

Bruce Stevenson

Nineteen & availableBruce has been racing and polishing racebikes for over 15 - 20 years, mostly on singles ranging from 250 two strokes to Yamaha engined Tigcrafts, he still holds the Brands Hatch GP circuit 250 single cylinder lap record after over 10 years, and only recently lost the short circuit record set at the same time.

Finished riding when his Tigcraft seized halfway down Craner Curves four years ago. Main racing claim to fame is overtaking Niall Mackenzie at Brands on his backside after his Armstrong 250 aquaplaned at full speed in the wet on the startline. Very good at preparation and spotting how a bike is working on track.
