Super Twins victor at last years Ulster Grand Prix, McLean who came close to claiming the prestigious Duke Road Race Rankings Championship in 2018, has progressed and some in recent years aboard four stroke machinery, in particular excelling on 650cc, 600cc steeds.
Looking ahead to this May’s Superbike encounters on the fabled Triangle course, the former Irish Road Race 125/Moto 3 champion, admitted recently that he’s still adapting his style to the McAdoo Racing ZX-10RR Kawasaki Superbike.
“I am still learning my way around the ZX-10RR Superbike. At the minute it is really taking me for a sail! But my priority is to get lots of miles in during testing and to learn.
I know it can take two to three years to get to grips with a Superbike. I’m not panicking.”
