Al­though Ryan Far­quhar is Guy Martin’s re­place­ment in the Tyco team for this year’s TT, team boss Philip Neill is ready for any last-minute change of heart from Martin.

“If the first day of the bi­cy­cle race doesn’t go well and Guy wants to get a flight back from Amer­ica there will be a bike there for him and he can race the TT as long as Paul Phillips (TT De­vel­op­ment Man­ager) al­lows it,” Neill says, more than a lit­tle hope­fully.

“If that hap­pened we would run all three rid­ers.”

Should there not be an eleventh-hour TT re­prieve, the door still re­mains open for Guy’s re­turn at his favourite meet­ing, the South­ern 100 in July. In re­cent sea­sons the pop­u­lar star has also been a reg­u­lar at North­ern Ire­land’s Ar­moy road races and at the Ul­ster Grand Prix, where he crashed last sea­son.

“Guy has not told us when he will race again but in the brief con­ver­sa­tions we have had my in­di­ca­tion is that he will race this year,” Neill says.
