Ending widespread paddock whispers that pastures new were possible, Manx hero Conor Cummins will remain in the Milenco by Padgetts fold, riding Honda’s alongside new team-mate Ian Hutchinson at the Northwest 200 and TT Races.
Twelve times a TT podium finisher, everyone knows how much it would mean for him, to finally join the TT winner’s circle.
The fourth quickest racer in TT history, he is one of just five racers to have lapped over the coveted 133 mph lap-mark.
Eighteen years since making his Mountain Course debut, the drive, determination, strive for golden TT feats remains potent, burning.
Will TT 2024 yield the top step of the podium, for the 2007 Duke Road Race Rankings Champion?
I and thousands of roads scene aficionados, supporters wouldn’t discount this, but the Manxman knows that the competition is only getting stronger, as shown by Peter Hickman, Michael Dunlop, Dean Harrison’s exploits in 2023.
