McWilliams ready for big bike challenge

Veteran racer Jeremy McWilliams says riding 600cc and 1000cc machines at the North West 200 will fufil one of his career ambitions.

McWilliams, who has earned two Supertwins wins in recent years at the meeting, was called up as a late replacement for injured Manxman Dan Kneen in the Mar-Train Yamaha over the weekend.

The 52-year-old will ride the Mar-Train superbike and also the team's 600cc machines as well as his regular Supertwin outing for Ryan Farquhar's KMR Kawasaki team.

McWilliams took a break from the action earlier this week and he played a round of golf with BBC commentator Steve Parrish at Royal Portrush.
