The record breaking, history making partnership of Peter Hickman and Smiths Racing, will for a fourth successive year tackle the International Road Races together in 2020.
When you look at the iconic rider/team achievements throughout 2019, you can’t help but be in huge admiration.
Overall 11 International Road Race victories, three TT victories, seven Ulster GP victories, a new Ulster GP lap record, retaining the Superstock TT crown, it’s endless the great, momentous, prodigious feats achieved during the past six months.

As during recent seasons, 23 times International Road Race winner Hickman will pilot in 2020, top spec S1000RR BMW machinery in Superstock and Superbike trim at the North West 200, TT Races and Ulster Grand Prix.
Established for many as the one to beat at road racing’s ‘big three’ events, his rise within the pure roads scene since over the past six years has been nothing short of astronomical.
Hugely talented, a great team player, cool under pressure and possessing an excellent temperament, he’s unquestionably one of the most complete International road racer’s one of his generation.
In firm contention to secure next month a fourth Macau GP triumph, as at all premier roads meetings, it’s going to take faultless, genius like performances from his fellow competitors to stop him further emboldening an already acclaimed, golden road racing CV.
