Conor Cummins is all set for this years road racing season. Conor is for this season competing for the Milwaukee Yamaha team at the Isle of Man TT, North west 200, Ulster grand prix, Southern 100 and Macau grand prix.  In 2012 Conor achieved podium finishes at the Southern 100, Dundrod 150 races and the Ulster grand prix when competing for the Tyco Suzuki by TAS team.

 

For this season the main aim for Conor is to race wins at the Isle of Man TT. Conor has lapped at the TT at over 131.5 mph making him the second fastest ever rider around the world famous road race circuit. Conor has also set lap records at the Southern 100, Ulster grand prix and Macau grand prix in his road racing career so far.

 

Known as the “two metre man” due to his height Conor is most known for his exploits on the big bikes but Conor has also achieved some significant results in the supersport 600 class at the international road races. This includes a maiden TT podium finish in the second supersport TT race of 2009.

 

Conor has competed only once at Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough on a Honda RS250 bike achieving a top 10 finish in the second 250 race of the day at the 2008 Steve Henshaw international gold cup road races. The Manxman who is one of the most highly rated riders in the road racing paddock is looking forward to competing for the Milwaukee Yamaha team this season.

 

When Conor competes at the Isle of Man TT this year he will be one of the riders to watch. Plus now with the news that Conor is competing in the world endurance championship it can only but be a help for Conor in gaining more bike time ahead of his main event of the season, the Isle of Man TT.
