Motocross enthusiast and prolific supporter of the sport, Stuart Miller has died. The Ci Sport head honcho spent the past eight months battling with cancer but passed away at a hospital in Guildford on July 3 aged 68.

Stuart formed CI Sport in the 1980s and over the years forged strong relationships with many of the sport’s leading brands including Alpinestars, Troy Lee Designs, Oakley, Renthal and DEP Pipes. As well as being a highly competitive businessman, Stuart was a keen competitor out on the circuit too and up until recently was a keen racer in the twinshock scene and the winner of Over 40 and Over 50 titles in the national twinshock series.

Considered by many to be a true gentleman, Stuart will be missed by many and quite a few of the people he’s touched over the years have already shown their respect on various social media channels.

Neville Bradshaw: “A very sad loss to the motocross family. Condolences to his close friends and family and thanks for all your support.”

Ashley Wilde: “Such sad news to hear the passing of Stuart Miller. A lovely guy who has supported so many riders. Thanks for all your help over the years.”

Malcolm Rathmell: “Stuart was a great person and will be very sadly missed by everyone.”

The loverly man behind Ci Sport has created an incredible business and supported so so many of us over the years, thank you for everything you did for myself and others, you will be missed.”
