Michael Pearson hopes to take the fight to hot favourite Michael Dunlop at next month’s KDM Hire Cookstown 100 in Co Tyrone.

The former Irish Superbike Champion joins an impressive entry for the traditional opening road race meeting of the season at the 2.1-mile Orritor circuit on Saturday, April 26, where Isle of Man TT star Dunlop could make his much awaited roads debut for BMW.

Pearson narrowly missed out on the rostrum at the Cookstown last year, twice finishing fourth in the Open A and feature Cookstown 100 Superbike races, but in the absence of Tyco Suzuki’s Guy Martin the Lisburn rider is targeting the top three and hopes to make a race of it with Dunlop.
