Amongst pure road racing’s fastest rising stars, alongside his exploits at the international events, he has developed into the dominant force at Aberdare Park, wrapping up in recent years three Welsh Open victories.

Additionally a top three finisher at Oliver’s Mount, he has the roads craft plus proven ability to make an eye catching Cookstown 100 debut.

Speaking about beginning his 2017 roads campaign at Cookstown, Dan said:

“I’m really excited about racing at the KDM Hire Cookstown 100 and would like to thank all the organisers for welcoming me to the event.”
