Adam McLean

McLean to ride Kawasaki machinery

Reigning Irish 125/Moto3 champion Adam McLean is to make his TT debut this year.

The 20-year-old from Northern Ireland will compete in the Supersport and Lightweight races on Kawasaki machinery.

The youngster is tipped by many pundits to reach the highest echelons of road racing, having started his career in 2006 on mini-motors.

After a successful time on the short-circuits, McLean made his first appearance on the roads at the Cookstown 100 in 2015.

Wins at the Irish National meetings have followed and he has ridden for Ryan Farquhar's KMR Kawasaki team taking victory at Armoy in the Junior Support event.
