‘He’s had bikes ca­pa­ble of win­ning be­fore’

14-time TT win­ner de­fends Tyco BMW team

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature - Ian Hutchin­son

“You never have a clue what Guy will do so I wasn’t sur­prised to hear he was com­ing back. I’m not even that sur­prised it’s with Honda be­cause he’s lo­cal to them and there has al­ways been a con­nec­tion.

“TAS had a bike built for Guy and they took it ev­ery­where last year in case he wanted to ride it. It shows the loy­alty they had to him, but I never re­ally thought about him be­ing my team-mate.

“All the main teams have put a bike to­gether that can win races, and plenty of us have won with dif­fer­ent teams so I don’t be­lieve this will make night and day dif­fer­ence. Guy’s had bikes ca­pa­ble of win­ning be­fore; only he knows what he needs to do to make that hap­pen. Some­thing will need to im­prove some­where if he’s to win.”
