MCN man to race at TT

1 of 2

MCN Senior Road Tester Adam Child will compete in this year’s lightweight TT race aboard a Kawasaki ER-6 with help from road racing expert Ryan Farquar.

Child – or Chad as he’s known at MCN – has been professionally testing bikes for over 10 years, seven of which at MCN, and has already had a taste of road racing at the North West 200, Oliver’s Mount and Paeroa New Zealand.

He will be riding for Ken Urwin Motorcycles near Doncaster who are currently building the bike with specialist help from Ryan and Maxton suspension.
MCN Editor Marc Potter commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Chad and another reason not to miss this year’s TT – we wish him the very best luck.”
As part of his introduction to the famous races, Chad has already been across to the Isle of Man learning the track from experts like Johnny Barton.
Chad has been riding bikes since he was five, has held a road licence for 18 years and also holds an international ACU race licence. He won the Auto 66 club’s supersport championship in 2010 before moving into the world of road racing.

In his first year he competed at Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough, finishing just outside the top 15 and came third in the Supersport class in New Zealand racing at Paeroa.
