MCN’s Adam Child to line up on Norton machinery at Gold Cup

1 of 1

MCN’s Senior Road Tester Adam Child will once again line up on the Norton supertwin machine built by the apprentices from the Derbyshire manufacturer’s British Motorcycle Manufacturing Academy.

Coming as a return to the bike after a dramatic TT that first saw him airlifted to hospital after crashing at 120mph on the Mountain before returning to ride in the final day’s Lightweight TT race, the Yorkshireman says he’s looking forward to returning to his home race.

“I can’t wait to get back to Oliver’s Mount – and to be able to introduce my young team to Yorkshire! I love the course and the event, and I’ve even managed to win a B race there before, so fingers crossed!”

He’ll ride the supertwin machine developed by the factory and the Academy, which utilizes a Kawasaki ER-6 engine in a custom built frame and bike.
