On hearing of the injuries received by young Australian motocross rider Jamie Brockman, former Australian and three-times American Superbike champion Mat Mladin has undertaken to support an appeal for the injured rider by donating a set of his race winning leathers to be auctioned on eBay (www.ebay.com) - with all proceeds going to the Jamie Brockman Foundation.

Brockman has been racing in America for the past three seasons, but tragically suffered severe spinal injuries after a race fall at the Spring Creek (Millville) round of the AMA Outdoor Championship on August 17. He remains in a serious condition.

"I have just found out about Jamie Brockman and the injuries that have left him as a quadriplegic," said Mladin. "No-one likes to hear about these sorts of things happening and I felt that it would be an appropriate cause to make a donation to."

The leathers Mladin will be placing on eBay are those he took to AMA SBK victory at Laguna Seca, the Mid-Ohio double-header and Virginia.
Auction details:
The Auction will start on Friday, September 5 at 6:00pm (USA, Pacific Time) and will run for 10 days.

The item will be on eBay under: Mat Mladin 2003 Agv Sport Leathers and will be placed in the Sports category. The item number is: 2751485764.
