Speaking about his eagerly awaited return to Mountain Course competition, he recently stated:
“It’s been a hard road back from the North West 200 crash and I thought we were there heading into the TT but another set back just left us a few weeks short.
I absolutely loved doing the two parade laps this year and the reaction I got from the fans was amazing. The next big target for me was always the Classic TT, and everything is going in to being fully fit and prepared for a proper return to racing.”
