Published: 01 December 2009

Conor Cummins stays with McAdoo Kawasaki for the big three international superbike road races next year.

Cummins said: “The McAdoo Kawasaki ZX-10R is tried and tested. We know where we are with it and it’s going to get even better so roll on 2010.”

Cummins impressive 2009 season included: two TT podiums, becoming only the third rider in history to record an official 130+mph TT lap, an outright lap record at the Southern 100, a world record lap of 133.28mph at Dundrod where he won two Superbike races, and most recently, runner-up at the Macau GP, pushing Stuart Easton all the way to the flag.

Conor added “I’m extremely pleased to continue riding for the McAdoo Kawasaki Racing team – we’ve had an awesome season together and hopefully, 2010 will be better again.

"I’m also chuffed to be competing full time next year on the Kawasaki’s as I’ve also signed to race British Superstock for Black Horse Kawasaki, the official Kawasaki UK Superstock team. It couldn’t be better really."

McAdoo team owner, Winston McAdoo is equally pleased: “It’s terrific news for us to have signed Conor again for 2010.

"We’ve always believed the lad is a top class rider and I’d like to think we played our part in proving that this season. He really is at the top of his game, and at just 23 years of age, the most exciting rider in road racing, bar none.

“We’ll be working hard over the winter to give him what he needs to win.

"The Kawasaki ZX-6R and ZX-10R are extremely competitive bikes and with the help of our engine tuners Race Techniques and Cosworth, we hope to further unleash the potential of the Ninja bikes for 2010.

"There’s no reason why we can’t build on our success of this season and perhaps, take it a step further.”
