Both Hardisty (27th within the second Monster Energy Supersport race) and Stevenson had challenging race week’s, with Hardisty registering two finishes from five race starts, whilst Stevenson’s race week concluded after an incident at Greeba Castle, during the second Monster Energy Supersport encounter.

Despite the challenges of TT 2019, it takes nothing away from the exploits, achievements, feats of the well respected, highly acclaimed Peoples Bike squad.

Speaking at Motorcycle Live about the squad’s TT 2020 plans, Janice Thompson Team Manager of the Peoples Bike team, provided a candid update.

“We’ve got a few things still to sort it out at the moment, but am hoping within the next two weeks we will have some announcements for you.

So were looking to get a new website up and running, which is what were just finalising now. We’ve got some exciting new things on the cards for next year, so all I’ll say at this stage just watch this space and hopefully by the end of the month we’ll have some news for you.”
