DEAN Harrison has announced his intention for this year’s Isle of Man TT as he looks to stamp his authority on the big bike class with a Superbike race win.
The Bradford rider revealed at the Oliver’s Mount Chat Show last night that he has one main goal for this year’s road racing season, and feels he needs to capitalise on an early race lead to snatch the top step of the podium.
“I want to win the Superbike TT,” he said. “I led the first two laps and just needed to hang on to it a bit longer to be honest.”
Harrison relinquished the lead to eventual winner Ian Hutchinson on the the third lap of the 2017 Superbike scrap, before falling victim to a charging Peter Hickman to eventually finish third, 13 seconds shy of victory.
The first six-lap race of the TT fortnight will once again be sponsored by bike wear baron RST, which recently revealed a renewed partnership with the world-famous event.
