Back In The Race!
Dan Kneen, the rider associated with Marks Bloom Racing for many years, took part in his first International Road Race of 2017.
The race bike for this year, a BMW S1000R, proudly displayed the logo of WSM: Marks Bloom.
The bike was rebuilt in the paddock at the Northwest 200 meeting on the Antrim coast of Northern Ireland following a crash while competing in the Mondello Masters in the Irish Republic the previous weekend.
Despite carrying a painful hand injury, Dan achieved an 8th place in the Superstock Race and 12th place in the Superbike race in competition with the best road racers in the world.
He was pleased with the performance of the bike – it was timed at 195mph through the speed trap!
Next it’s off to the Horice Road Races in the Czech Republic and the Isle of Man TT.
