Swallow flies

To the Manx

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

Af­ter a stunning but ul­ti­mately un­suc­cess­ful as­sault on the Isle of Man Clas­sic TT in 2014, Kiwi Dave Ke­nah will have his Manx Nor­ton back in Manx­land again this year where rider Chris Swallow will again be in the sad­dle. Last year, Swallow was the fastest Nor­ton through the speed trap at 136.12 mph, beaten only by the twin cylin­der Pa­tons, but re­tired from the race with a bro­ken clutch ca­ble. “We have some un­fin­ished busi­ness,” said Dave. “Chris was very much on form last year and the bike was the fastest sin­gle cylin­der, so we can but try again!”
