It is hard to believe another race season is almost behind us. 2016 is definitely a year for me to forget in terms of racing. It started off strong back in January where I won an endurance race over in China. I was in good form and had a big…


Well, it’s that time of the year again where a small group of predominantly Irish motorcycle racers take to the roads and compete in what some think is the craziest form of racing on the planet.

Epic. Mega. Once-in-a-lifetime. A dream year. Call it what you will, but 2014 was on heck of a year for me. In this blog there will be facts, name-dropping, a little bit of bragging, and some cold, hard facts. When someone told me I should start a bucket list, I…

I don’t always think everything through. Usually everything works out, which is precisely why I continue to make decisions without really thinking of all the possible outcomes. My wife Holly has been to plenty of my races around the world and, more recently, so has my baby Kaitlyn. Having them…

In Part 1 of my 'Testing at Suzuka' story, I told you about the process of getting to the world famous Japanese track and getting prepped by a top notch team to test a top notch machine. Have a quick read of Part 1 if you haven't already, and then dig…
