Kneen set for Yamaha roads debut at Tandragee 100

Manxman Dan Kneen will get his first taste of how the Mar-Train Yamaha performs on the roads this weekend when he tries to emulate his double Superbike win success from 2015 at the Tandragee 100.

Following on from a successful test programme, Kneen took in some Irish short circuit races to bring himself up to speed on his new machinery and he didn’t disappoint, notching up six podiums in six races. A brace of second places on Easter Monday at Kirkistown was followed up by an impressive showing on his Bishopscourt debut on Saturday at a cold and windy round of the Masters series.

Second and third placings in both Supersport and Superbike after some exhilarating races with the championship regulars leave Kneen in buoyant form ahead of this weekend’s Tandragee 100.
 
“It is nice to get a few races under my belt and really encouraging to be in the hunt for wins so early in the season. It was only really my second proper run on the Supersport bike and I’m really impressed by it straight away,” said Kneen.

“The Superbike is fantastic and I am having fun riding it, I can’t wait to get out at Tandragee as I think the YZF-R1M will be a competitive package around that circuit. I’ve only raced there once but I enjoyed it and came away with both Superbike victories so we hopefully shouldn’t be too far away.”
