At home on the Isle of Man, and now at home on the Yamaha
Isle of Man TT hero and Manx resident Conor Cummins will join Milwaukee Yamaha for the TT in 2012!

The Ramsey-born rider will also contest the NW200, the Ulster Grand Prix and the Southern 100 on the Yamaha R1 and partner William Dunlop.
Cummins said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I can't thank Shaun Muir and his team enough for the chance to join a championship-winning outfit.”

He added: "I feel that with the experience and equipment Milwaukee Yamaha have, I will be in a position to challenge for Superbike race wins not only at my home event, the TT, but in the other internationals as well. In the past, I have been very close to it but I now I see a clear way forward and my sights are firmly set on the podium."

Milwaukee Yamaha’ team boss Shaun Muir added: "With Ian Hutchinson still on the sidelines, I needed to find someone capable of pushing William right from the word go. Conor is experienced, fast and has a huge will to win, so we are expecting great things from both riders in 2013."
