Tyco BMW’s Josh Elliott will get another MCE British Superbike shot as he again stands in for the injured Andy Reid at Assen this weekend.
Elliott – a double podium finisher in recent weeks in the 1000cc Superstock class – is delighted at the prospect of stepping up once again to the premier BSB class, for what is, the penultimate round of the season, at the iconic Cathedral of Motorcycling in the Netherlands.
“It’s a great opportunity, right at the time of the season when any rider wants to get noticed. At Snetterton we were in at the deep end late on, as Christian made an eleventh hour decision not to race. This time I have a little more time to prepare” he said of his earlier season opportunity in Norfolk at round five,” he said.
“Assen is a circuit that I love riding at, and as much as I know it will be a challenging weekend, my goal is to use every session sensibly to again acclimatise myself with the Tyco BMW Superbike; then hopefully make a good account of myself on Sunday when it matters.”
