HUNDREDS of bikers are expected to roar into Denholm this year for the ninth Steve Hislop Memorial Run.

The annual event, in memory of the former British Superbike champion, pictured right, who died in a helicopter accident near Teviothead in 2003, takes place on Sunday, September 4.

The 165-mile route starts out at Denholm Green at 10.30am, before entering Northumberland via the Carter Bar.

The cavalcade then visits Cumbria before returning to Scotland on the A7 and is expected to arrive back in Denholm at 3pm.

Last year, nearly 300 bikers celebrated the life of Chesters-born Hizzy by taking part in the run.
