Rachael Clegg unveils new 'art-nude' Milestones calendar for 2015

by 9th December 2014

Journalist, artist and motorcycling enthusiast, Rachael Clegg, has stripped bare and braved the cold Isle of Man air to create the 2015 edition of her Isle of Man TT Races calendar, 'Milestones'.

The evocative calendar features 12 images of Rachael - nude - taken around the TT course, each representing an historic racing story from the globally renowned road-racing event.

Rachael said: “Everything in the calendar means something. My father and grandfather were TT racers so the course is so special to me. I wanted to celebrate some of the wonderful stories that form the race's history."

And, despite being the third Milestones calendar to be released since its conception in 2012, the 33-year-old from Rochdale whose dad and granddad were both TT riders, says its creation has still been a ‘character building and very funny’ experience.

Rachael said: “We took new pictures this year, which I am really pleased with. I was in a nasty hit-and-run accident before Christmas and knocked off my push bike so I wasn’t even sure we’d be able to make another calendar. But after lots of training to get my strength back we did it. As it turned out I ended up in A & E twice during the shoot anyway!

“I am so happy with the results and it’s thanks to my team - photographer and good friend and assistant Shaz Nicol, that we could pull this off.”

On the back of Milestones Rachael is now creating a calendar for the Nurburgring, among other art directing commissions and has her own range of motorsport-related products available at
