HUTCHY’S TT WARM-UP GOES BET­TER THAN EX­PECTED

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

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.
