Adrian Archibald, 40
Ballymoney, Northern Ireland
Debut in 1997 – 3 wins, 8 podiums
Fastest TT Lap
Now a TT veteran, Archibald shows no signs of slowing down and continues to chalk up results of the highest order. Fourth and sixth in the two Superbike races and a personal best lap of almost 129mph last year more than proved that and he should again be challenging for such results this time around. Continuing with his own privately run team, the fastest ever Northern Irishman may found a win to be hard come by but he can certainly never be written off and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he was to step on the podium once more with his best chances again coming in the Superbike races.
