R&G-protected Rob Guiver (Hyside Motorcycles) who put in a commanding performance in dry conditions to control the pace and take the Race 2 win in the Ducati TriOptions Cup.
Morris was slightly frustrated to finish second, but the former 848 Challenge champion leads the championship standings by nine points ahead of Dennis Hobbs who also had a consistently strong weekend.
Guiver said: “Race one was a bit disappointing because I felt I could have been top five, but I’ve made up for it today. The bike was really comfortable to ride – today was like a dream come true. I had a really good start and was just surprised how much pace I had, I could keep the gap consistent and to win it was just amazing. I didn’t have any expectations for this year, but after today I think I’ll be giving it a go for the championship!

The R&G ‘Elevation’ Paddock Stand Bobbin is available in fitments for all bikes with a threaded provision on the swingarm to allow the use of prong-type paddock stands, such as the R&G Elevation range.
The enlarged collar on the inside of the bobbin helps prevent the swingarm getting marked when lining up the prong of a stand.
Lovingly machined in Italy from aircraft-grade aluminium, the body of the bobbin is beautifully finished and is mounted easily to a bike with its appropriate Allen bolt. The Elevation bobbin is more than strong enough to handle the weight of its intended bike while remaining incredibly light.
Three finishes are available: black, silver and titanium and cost £24.99 per pair. This new product offers an alternative to the protective R&G Cotton Reel (£19.99) and discreet Paddock Stand Bobbin (£8.49 – £11.49)
The 2014 Tristar R&G Triple Challenge will be officially launched on Saturday 5th April at the world famous Ace Cafe in London. T3 Racing, who run the series, will also be launching their Pirelli National Superstock 600 team on the night. Continue reading →
