Ryan Farquhar confirms 2013 plans

Farquhar underlined his commitment to young Ulster prospect Hamilton and said it was his 'main priority' to continue working with the Ballyclare rider in 2013.

“Retaining Jamie was always a main priority so I'm delighted to have done just that and thanks to the input of John (Duggan), we've been able to add a 600cc Supersport machine to the stable,” he said.

“He did a great job for the team in his debut year in 2012 and I have every confidence he'll progress even further up the results in 2013 and continue to make a huge impression on the road racing scene.

"Having previously excelled in the British Championship, Connor made it known to the team that he was keen to make the switch to the roads and we've been able to give him the platform to do just that.

“My personal involvement as a rider may have come to an end but I'm busier than ever and am really relishing my new role, eagerly looking forward to the first meetings in April.

“We've still got some big plans for the season to be announced so watch this space.”

Mike why shouldn't Ryan continue to pass on his vast knowledge & experience to other riders who WANT to continue racing on roads. Ryan's bikes are amongst the very best out there considering the factory teams he is competing against. There are other former riders who are well known team managers - Rob McElnea and Neil Tuxworth for example who both raced on the roads. After the horrendous injuries that ended Neil's racing career he didn't walk away. Are they hypocrites as well?.
