Mike Browne has “been working hard to get” his first TT podium

Mike Browne became the first rider from Southern Ireland to grace a podium at the Isle of Man TT Races since 2018 when he claimed a hard-earned second place in Tuesday evening’s Supertwin race.

Having officially claimed the tag as the fastest rider from his homeland around the Mountain Course earlier in race week (129.294mph in the Superbike race), Browne lived up to his billing as one of the sport’s most promising riders as he edged out Jamie Coward for the runners-up spot after a race long battle.

A winner in last year’s Lightweight Manx Grand Prix, the 32 year old also gave the Burrows Engineering/RK Racing team, run by former racer John Burrows, their first TT podium.


“I’m made up for the team and had no problems at all,” he calmly said afterwards. “It’s nice to give the team a podium after years of trying and I was aware of how close it was between myself and Jamie.”

“I gave it all I had over the Mountain and whilst I’ve been seen as a bit of dark horse this week, I’ve been working hard to get here. The Paton was flying so a big thanks to Graeme Hanna, John and the whole team for getting the ride sorted and it’s brilliant to get a TT podium.”

Full results from the TT as of the 6th of June can be found here.
