Story by HU17.net
On Friday April 5th, Alliance Steel Racing revealed the bike that their rider, Jordan Rushby, will be racing on in the upcoming Superstock 1000 Championship.
Rushby, from Beverley, has been racing since he was nine years old. Now 21, he will again be on BMW Machinery in the 2019 Superstock 1000 Championship.
This will be the second year that he has raced in this class. Now he has some experience at this level, Rushby says he is looking to have a real go at the championship.
Rushby’s races take place on the undercard of the British Superbike Championship. On the track, he will be taking on riders who have raced at the highest level.
Speaking to HU17.net at the official bike launch night, Rushby said;
“Last season was my first time at that level having stepped up from 600cc to a 1000cc bike. Having done a full year, we know what things are like now. So now I want to try and establish myself at this level. Last season I managed to qualify for each race and score points, this time around I am aiming to improve on my points total and get closer to the front. For me, if I can finish in the top 20 each week and get points I would be really happy with that. There are more riders this season taking part. I think there are over 60 teams competing. As a result of this, they will split qualifying into two parts. These riders I will be racing against, are some of the best riders in the UK. I can not say I am better than them but mid-corner speed is where my strengths are.”
Alliance Steel Racing Rider Jordan Rushby Thanks Sponsors and Supporters
Despite breaking his back twice, Rushby says nothing will take his love for the sport away. He also says that hurting himself only makes him want to race more.
None of this would be possible without the support of his sponsors and fan base. At the unveiling of his bike for the upcoming season, they were invited to meet Rushby and his team and see the bike.
Rushby had a message for those who have supported him, he said;
“I just want to say a big thank you to all of my sponsors and to the people who support me on Facebook. All of those people who share and also like our posts really help us to get where we are.”
