A statement from the Cookstown-based outfit on Friday said the decision had been taken collectively.

The statement said: “We have decided as a team to sit out the 2022 TT races due to a lack of track time so far this season. Adam’s two crashes at the Cookstown and subsequent concussion meant we also missed the Tandragee.

“This left us behind the eight-ball at the North West 200 and with a number of set-up issues there we decided along with Adam to miss this year’s event.

“Adam hasn’t raced there since 2018 and that was his first proper attempt at the Mountain Course. We felt underprepared – and the TT is just too intense in these circumstances.

“We have decided to stay at home and race locally for the remainder of the season both on short circuits and the roads.”
