Progressing to a 600cc machine after success in the smaller classes saw the Kent man make his mark on the British Supersport championship on a private Yamaha R6, missing out on the title but took most pole positions, the most wins, and the most Fastest Laps across the season!

KYLE RYDE #77

Kyle Ryde started his racing career on minibikes and progressed to the 125cc class with consummate ease. Taking the British 125cc title in 2011 as the youngest-ever winner of the championship, Ryde also contested the Red Bull Rookies Cup in 2011 and 2012. Moving to the 600cc Superstock class he secured his second national title in 2014 before campaigning a Yamaha R6 in the British Supersport championship, finishing runner up however the highlight of the season was a stellar display as a Wildcard in the World Supersport Championship at his home circuit of Donington Park in which he finished second.

After a difficult time in World Supersport and back in the UK, Ryde took time out to regroup, returning to full-time racing in 2019 and taking his third British title after dominating the GP2 series. For 2020 Ryde finally got his chance of a full-time British Superbike ride, taking a win at Silverstone as well as Pole Position and the Fastest Lap of the race. For 2021 Ryde joins RICH Energy OMG Racing with a title challenge his only goal.

BILLY MCCONNELL #3

Aussie Billy McConnell is one of the most popular riders in the British Superbike paddock. Making his name in the late 90s in the Virgin Mobile R6 Cup, the Adelaide man has been a mainstay of the championship and its support classes ever since. Securing the 2014 British Supersport Championship, McConnell has been at the forefront of every series he's contested, with multiple race wins and podiums to his credit.

Joining the Rich Energy OMG Racing team in 2019, Billy's maiden season was interrupted through illness however the tough Aussie battled his way back to podium finishes before the season was out. 2020 saw the switch to BMW machinery and successful season with a win and two further podium visits and more of the same expected for 2021.

The pandemic of 2020 caused significant delays to the road and rally racing calender. However, we remain determined to compete on multiple fronts.

JAMES HILLIER 

Isle of Man TT star James Hillier is a strong addition to our Roads team alongside Davo Johnson. Hillier has stood on the top step of the TT podium, winning the Lightweight TT as well as seven 2nd place finishes and six 3rds. Hillier is Mr. Consistent on the Island with only five DNFs in 60 starts and with a fastest lap of 132.414mph, the man from Ringwood in Hampshire is always one to watch.

Recently Hillier turned his hand to a new discipline in motorcycle racing, Rally Raid! With Hillier in the saddle and the RICH Energy OMG Racing team supporting him, he has taken on the Andalucian Rally and come back with an impressive 3rd place in class.

DAVO JOHNSON

Accompanying Hillier on the Roads is Adelaide's David Johnson. 'Davo' was in a rich vein of form in 2019 as the likeable Aussie rider secured his first TT podium, a Classic TT win in the Superbike class, and rounded the year off with a podium at the season-ending Macau GP.

 

A former junior BMX champion, Davo has served his time in British Superbikes, British Superstock, and World Superbikes Championship but it's the Roads where Johnson has found his home. Riding for well-known teams such as SMR, Norton, and Honda Racing, Johnson is quick and consistent a racer as you'll find and he cannot wait to get back out on the Roads in 2022.
