TYCO BMW COLUMNIST BRITISH SUPERBIKES

It’s been some time since I had to sit down and actually engage my brain into something, so writing a column is quite a novelty. I guess a bit of an intro would be a good thing to start with but having said that, the last bio I did was for my Tinder profile and that only resulted in one nut job (read that how you want) and far too many of my ‘swipe rights’ swiping the other way. Ah well, you bought the mag and you have no ability to swipe left so you may as well carry on reading… Bit of background for you then? Well, I’m a country boy chasing a dream. The end goal is to win the BSB title on my Tyco BMW. I’m in my third season with the same team now so it’s kind of a ‘put up or shut up’ season for me. I spent my youth, (like most in the paddock) learning my bike trade in motocross before the switch to Supermoto. SM started as a way to get my foot in the door to go racing Superbike. My dad was a pretty successful short circuit racer and despite his knowledge and contacts we never had the money or chance early on to go straight to the short circuits so Supermoto was a great way for me to get slicks on tarmac on a budget. As it turned out, I was pretty good at it and fast forward a load of years and I ended up with a good few British titles and a good shot at the Worlds before finally making a turn to the dark side and going to full time circuits. Fast forward a few more years and after stints in BSS, WSBK and WSS I’m now back, happy and settled in BSB. With British titles in youth MX and in SM, I’d love to add a title in a third discipline and that’s the goal.
