Cummins fit and ready for action

"The lads have worked really hard over the winter to get the bikes ready so I want to reward them with good results this year for their efforts' - Conor Cummins
Conor Cummins is itching for more action on his Milwaukee Yamaha R1 after riding the machine for the first time at the official British Superbike tests.

The Manx rider is part of Shaun Muir's international roads team along with Northern Irishman William Dunlop.

Cummins was left distraught after missing the Isle of Man TT in 2012 after he sustained a wrist injury when he was rammed by Gary Johnson in an incident at the North West 200, which also left Martin Jessopp with a broken collarbone.

However, he has put the disappointment of last season behind him and has been training hard throughout the winter as he sets his sights on his return to the TT in June.

Cummins, whose career was almost ended by a horror crash during the 2010 Senior TT race, wrote in his official Milwaukee Yamaha blog: “It's been a long winter yet again - it never gets any easier.

“The winter blues were well and truly demolished when I threw my leg over my Milwaukee Yamaha race bike.

“They look stunning and I know the lads have worked really hard over the winter to get them all ready so I want to reward them with good results this year for their efforts,” he added.

“I have been training hard in preparation for the season ahead and mixture of gym, football, cycling and motocross has seen me well sorted fitness-wise and I feel ready to tackle some racing.

“I have done a fair amount of mountain biking over the winter months.

“We're lucky to have such good terrain to train on here on the Isle of Man. All in all I'm in good shape.”

The Ramsey rider's first international roads outing will be at the North West 200 in May.

The 26-year-old will also ride in the Endurance World Championship this season in a Yamaha Europe team.
