In IOMTT, News, Roads

ISLE of Man TT and MGP racers will team up with professional cyclists this week as they hit the Mountain Course to raise money for the Manx Solidarity fund.

On what would have been Senior TT race day this Friday, June 12, seven squads will put rubber to the road for the charitable trust, which delivers funds to causes and individuals on the Island that are in need as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

TT star Conor Cummins leads the lineup as he teams up with Jessie Carridge while fellow TT man Michael Evans partners UCI Pro cyclist Sam Brand of Team Novo Nordisk.

Double Manx Grand Prix winner Nathan Harrison, who was set to make his TT debut this year, lines up alongside former An Post Rás winner Andrew Roche as Jamie Cringle, another TT hopeful, joins UCI Women’s Continental rider Anna Christian.

Former Ultralightweight TT podium finisher Nigel Beattie will be riding with UCI Continental man Mark Christian of the Canyon dhb team, IOMTT boss Paul Phillips partners Tara Ferguson and olympic gold medallist Pete Kennaugh joins Leanne Harper.

Harrison and Roche currently lead the donation standings with a total of more than £2000 raised so far.
