Top Ten Riders Of The Season – 3rd – Peter Hickman

Finishing third in Road Racing News top ten riders of the 2015 pure road racing season, is Peter Hickman.

Since taking to the roads for the first time at the North West 200 in 2014, he has gone from strength to strength between the hedges.

Without a doubt this year, he’s been amongst the outstanding performers around Dundrod and the Mountain Course and around Macau, where he secured his second international road race victory.

Main highlights of Peter’s season have included:

Macau Grand Prix victory
Third place finish in the Dundrod 150 superbike race
Ulster Grand Prix superbike race two victory
Second place finish in superstock race at the Ulster Grand Prix
Fifth place finish in the Royal London 360 superstock TT
Becoming the eighth fastest rider in TT history, following lap speed of 131.626 mph

For many Peter Hickman starts as one of the favourites for superbike, superstock and senior race victories at TT 2016.

All set to pilot factory backed ZX10R Kawasaki’s for GB Moto Racing, it would not at all surprise anyone if he records his first TT victory next year.

In my opinion he has every chance of adding to his current tally of two international road race victories, which consist of Ulster Grand Prix superbike race two victory and his memorable Macau Grand Prix success.

Having gelled exceptionally quickly with the Mountain Course, Triangle, Dundrod and Macau, next few years could see Hicky go from been one of the best pure road racers in the world, to becoming the best.
