Andrew Cleave and Dave Power

Motorcycle speedway riders

In the 1980s, Shepparton motorcycle sidecar rider Andrew Cleave was making a name for himself.

After starting with brother Tom who rode with him as a passenger, Cleave asked friend Dave Power to be his passenger on the bike.

Power was somewhat reluctant at first but with Cleave’s coaching, he took to his job with skill and gusto.

The speedway team with Cleave as the driver and Power as the sidecar swinger, won two Australian speedway Grand Slam events, eight state titles, five Australian best pairs and the Australian Long Track title along with international competitions.
