American Brandon Cretu Will Return To Compete In The 2013 Isle Of Man TT

Three-time Isle of Man TT and recent Macau GP competitor, Brandon Cretu, will return to compete at the world renowned Isle of Man TT for the fourth straight season. He will compete in all three liter bike classes; Superstock, Superbike, and Senior. Fresh off his first visit to compete in the 2012 Macau Grand Prix, Cretu is keen to get back on the roads and further make himself a staple in the rider line-up that fans see when they open the program.

For those unfamiliar with the TT races, it is considered the ultimate test of man and motorcycle. Held once a year on the Isle of Man, a small island resting in between England and Ireland, it regularly attracts tens of thousands of spectators from all over the world to partake in the festival and watch the amazing races. The course is over 37 miles long and snakes across the entire island's public roads which are shutdown for the races to take place. The 2013 TT starts on May 25 and lasts until June 8.

"I am really excited to get back to the TT this year, it is all any TT rider thinks about all year long...setting off down Bray Hill at ludicrous speed. There is nothing quite like it! I am really stoked to be on Dunlops for the TT this year as well. Dunlop USA has really stepped up and I will be riding US built NTec's around the Mountain Course. After using them at the Macau GP last year I know how good they are and I know they will help give me the confidence I need to propel me to a personal best finish." said Cretu.

"My program isn't quite fully together yet as I am still in need of a title sponsor and some financial help to get myself and my crew over to the island. Many sponsors have already donated some items for my yearly fundraiser so that should help absorb a lot of the massive costs involved in racing at the TT. I am still working on some interesting deals though which I hope to announce in the coming weeks which will be very exciting for my fans and sponsors as well." said Cretu.

Cretu would like to thank all of his amazing sponsors who have signed up for another successful year at the prestigious Isle of Man TT. However, he is still in need of sponsors for his 2013 TT effort, interested sponsors can contact him via the contact page on his website or directly at He is especially in need of airfare to get himself and his crew to the Isle of Man.

Fans are encouraged to continue to follow his 2013 Isle of Man TT preparations on his website,
