Hick­man: ‘I’m not re­ally a 600 rider’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Peter Hick­man proved he’s not purely a big bike spe­cial­ist af­ter he took an im­pres­sive third place on his Trooper Beer Tri­umph 675 in the Su­pers­port race.

“I’m not re­ally a 600 rider as I’ve not done a lot on them, but I just get faster and faster the more I ride it. I did a 126.8mph, which was the fastest lap of the race so that’s nice.”

Hick­man may have set the fastest lap of the race, but was once again a slow starter com­pared to his main ri­vals on the open­ing lap.

“I tend to take a lit­tle bit of time to get go­ing, and the weather ob­vi­ously wasn’t bril­liant overnight and I was a lit­tle bit cau­tious un­der the trees.

“I am still in­ex­pe­ri­enced com­pared to some of the other guys who have all rid­den in those mixed con­di­tions be­fore,” the 30-year-old added.
