Lightweight race would prove to be one of the main highlights of TT 2014 with 14th position secured whilst the blue riband senior TT was another race which would see Michael show his undoubted talent on the road race circuit where stars, memorable moments and history always happen.

18th place finish and personal best lap speed in the 124 mph bracket meant he ended TT 2014 in extremely positive fashion. Last season saw the 2013 grand final winner at Mid Antrim 150 road races clinch Irish road race 250 championship victory.

This was secured following series of top class performances throughout the season on Cookstown Burrows engineering RS250 Honda. Further highlights from 2014 included finishing runner up in grand final race at Kells, second place finisher in grand final race at Skerries and finishing overall second in the 2014 Irish road race superbike championship.

Most recently Michael recorded highly creditable 21st place finish on his debut at the Macau Grand Prix. Going into TT 2015 he is greatly looking forward to his eighth year of competition on the mountain course.
