Davey Todd Clinches First Isle of Man TT Victory with Thrilling Superstock Win

Davey Todd has secured his inaugural Isle of Man TT victory, triumphing in Thursday’s electrifying Superstock race.

Riding for Milwaukee BMW, Todd edged out Peter Hickman by a mere 2.2 seconds after three intense laps of the legendary Mountain Course.

The race was a nail-biter, with Todd and Hickman locked in a fierce battle on the timesheets. Despite Hickman’s relentless pursuit, including clocking the fastest lap of the race at a blistering 135.140mph on his final circuit, Todd maintained his composure and lead, crossing the finish line to claim a hard-fought victory.

Michael Dunlop, now celebrated as the most successful rider in TT history, finished third, 17.7 seconds behind Hickman, with Dean Harrison trailing four seconds further back in fourth place.

Todd’s win marks a significant milestone in his TT career. Prior to this race, his best TT result was a single podium finish. However, his performance in 2024 has been outstanding, with runner-up positions in both the Supersport opener and the Superbike race earlier in the week.

The 28-year-old Yorkshireman has been on exceptional form this season, consistently finishing on the podium in every public roads course and short circuit race he has entered. His stellar year includes victories in both Superstock races at the British Superstock series rounds at Oulton Park and Donington, as well as a double win in the class at the North West 200 in May.

Despite Hickman’s impressive efforts and his record of winning the last five Superstock races at the TT since 2018, Todd’s determination and skill saw him through. His third lap speed of 135.092mph, though slightly slower than Hickman’s, was sufficient to secure his maiden TT triumph.

Reflecting on his victory, an elated Todd said, “This is a dream. It feels unreal. I knew it was close, and I hit traffic on the last lap, having to pass three riders. I tried to get my head down on that final lap and put some good sectors together.”

Todd’s success is particularly noteworthy as it comes in his first season with the Northern Ireland-based TAS Racing team. He praised his team and bike, saying, “I have to give it up to the whole Milwaukee BMW team. They put a wonderful bike under me. The bike is incredible, and I feel right at home on it. I love riding it, whether it’s at the TT, in BSB, or at the North West 200.”

Rounding out the top six were James Hillier and Jamie Coward, who delivered commendable performances in the highly competitive race.

Todd’s victory not only underscores his rising prowess in the motorsport world but also sets the stage for more thrilling races in the TT week ahead.
