Steve Lomas a British rider  born 1949 in Manchester started his riding career at  Weymouth Wildcats in 1974. At the end of his very first season in the league for Weymouth he was signed by Len Silver for Hackney Hawks. Going on to appear as a rider for Wolverhampton Wolves 1977, Edinburgh Monarchs 1978, and Boston Barracudas 1980 to 1984, riding as a guest for many others including Sheffield, Coventry and Kings Lynn.

Steve considers his best achievements were being third in the Champions Chase, winning Best Pairs with Zenon Plech. He also rates coming runner up in the 1982 Nation League Riders Championship and he still holding the track record at Boston. 

Although he did not mention it I have been told that he also took part with some success in the 1978 unofficial England v Denmark series, unofficial as far as the Danish speedway control were concerned, but still an honour to be chosen to represent your country.

When asked what made him most proud Steve replied "managing to make a living from the sport for Twelve Years" indeed that was quite an accomplishment considering Steve did not start Speedway riding until his mid 20's; most people start riding in their teens.

Steve retired from the track in 1986 but is still involved with bikes and biking sports as he now runs a motorcycle Wheelbuilding and tyre business call 'five-one wheels'. 5-1 sounds a good score to me.
