Tributes have been paid to "up and coming rider" Malachi Mitchell-Thomas - last year's Senior Manx Grand Prix winner. 
 
The 20-year-old rider from Chorley died on Saturday after crashing at the North West 200. 
 
In a statement released by the Manx Motor Cycle Club organisers say he started racing at the age of six and it was his dream to race on the TT Course.
 
They said he was also "very keen" to put something back into the sport and had recently taken a course to assist MGP newcomers.
 
His father - who described him as a "fantastic bike racer" has confirmed he'll scatter his son's ashes during this year's TT Festival.
