Dan Kneen made the most of his Mar-Train Racing debut on Monday scoring a brace of podium finishes on his YZF-R1M superbike.

Hi Everyone, As I write this I'm sat in the hyperbaric chamber giving my foot injury a boost of oxygen and physio before TT, as my strength has taken longer to get back to normal than I thought. I've just arrived home after the NW 200, it's not always been my favourite event due to the difficulty of competing as a privateer but now I have a top team around me things were going to be ...

Dan had a very constructive first competitive outing on his Valvoline Padgett's Superstock Fireblade at the weekend's BSB opener at Donington Park. Riding for testing and track time as much as anything, Dan qualified 22nd, using the outing for set up on the new bike. In the race, Dan took the first lap very steady, in order to avoid any possible comings together. As the pack spread out a ...

Hi Everyone,I'm just back at Cookstown from another great meeting, The Faugheen 50 at the weekend, it hasn't been run for 5 years due to lack of funds so I wasn't the only newcomer there for once which was handy. The track was another short one with 1.15 lap times but there is a bit of everything thrown in and was fairly bumpy which made it tricky too.The 600 went well but with me making a ...
