TT Legend John McGuinness will be at BikeWise 2018

JMC_Paton_Enclosure-817TT Legend John McGuinness will once again be at BikeWise 2018.

Sadly Johns injuries from last years crash at the NW200 meant he was unable to ride the Silver Machine (Norton) around the Island in a race however John did get to do a couple of display lap around the Island.

Speaking about his competitive return to the TT Mountain Course John McGuinness said:  “It’s been a hard road back from the North West 200 crash and I thought we were there heading into the TT but another set back just left us a few weeks short. I absolutely loved doing the two parade laps this year and the reaction I got from the fans was amazing. The next big target for me was always the Classic TT, and everything is going in to being fully fit and prepared for a proper return to racing."

He continued by saying:  “I’m buzzing about the whole thing really. I love the Classic TT atmosphere and I really enjoy working with Roger Winfield and his team and their Paton is a joy to ride around Mountain Circuit. I’m not going to make any predictions on how competitive we are going to be, but when I rode the Norton at the TT, the feeling was good and, above all else, I just want to be out there with the rest of the guys again, going as fast as we can and putting on a good show for the fans. If we get a result out of it then that will be a bonus on this occasion.”

  John(and his family) will be ‘trekking’ over to Durham from their family home in Morecambe to once again support the BikeWise event
John McGuinness has sponsorship links with local based Hitachi Construction Machinery Ltd (formerly HM Plant Ltd) & in particular CEO John Jones, who has maintained a close link with John for a number of years.
