Bradford's Dean Harrison underlined his credentials as one of road racing's hottest young prospects in 2013.

The 24-year-old made a big impression this year on the RC Express by MSS Kawasaki machines, turning heads with a brilliant ride to fourth place in the Superstock race at the Isle of Man TT behind Michael Dunlop, Gary Johnson and John McGuinness.

Harrison finished 11th and eighth in the Superbike and Senior races and underlined his versatility with eighth and seventh place results on the Ian Bell Yamaha R6 in the Supersport class on the unforgiving Mountain Course.

He also finished on the rostrum in second place behind James Hillier in the Lightweight Supertwin race.

Harrison claimed three rostrums in the Superbike races at the Southern 100 at Billown and held off Guy Martin to win the 600cc race. He also took a hard-earned win in the Supertwin category over Ivan Lintin and Jamie Hamilton.

Next year, Harrison will remain in the RC Express racing colours, riding Kawasaki machinery in the Superbike and Superstock classes as he aims to boost his results further.

He has also penned an exciting deal to ride in the Supersport races at the international meetings for British championship team Mar-Train Racing.
