HUTCHY’S TT WARM-UP GOES BETTER THAN EXPECTED
After writing off his S1000RR in Saturday qualifying, Josh Elliott turned disaster into triumph on his Tyco BMW debut by claiming second spot in Sunday’s Superstock race.
“I definitely gave myself a lot of hard work but it worked like a dream in the end,” the reigning stock 1000 champion said after starting from ninth.
TT hero Ian Hutchinson finished just behind Elliott, taking the race to his young team-mate on his return to the circuit where he had his horrific crash in 2010.
“Josh is going to be fighting for the championship all year and my job is to do the roads so I am happy with the podium,” the 11 times TT winner said.
“I’ve got to keep my mind on the bigger picture and then maybe get a run at these kids after the TT is over!”
Former Tyco rider Taylor Mackenzie was the run-away race winner on a Buildbase BMW.
