Zerofit athlete Glenn Irwin has won the prestigious Irish Motorcyclist of the Year Award following a stellar season which saw him finish runner-up in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship.
This is the second year in a row that the 33-year-old has collected The Joey Dunlop Trophy, and he also won the Best Short Circuit on UK Circuits prize.
The Carrickfergus man was officially unveiled as a Zerofit athlete on November 1, 2023 to promote, train and race in our award-winning products, including the Heatrub Ultimate Baselayer (£55), Heatrub Move (£40), Ice Weave (£55) and Cold Skin (£55).
As well as winning an impressive 10 races in the 2023 BSB campaign, Glenn also triumphed in both Superbike events at the North West 200.
At the start of December, Zerofit and Glenn announced their first dual-branded product collection consisting of the ZFGI Heatrub Ultimate Baselayer, ZFGI Heatrub Move Baselayer, ZFGI Hoodie, ZFGI Podium Cap and the ZFGI Pole Snapback Hat.
‘We are thrilled that Glenn was recognised for his success in 2023 with the Irish Motorcyclist of the Year Award, richly deserved for a superb season,’ said Michael Morton, Zerofit MD.
‘We cannot wait to see him back in action this year and hopefully go one better in the final BSB standings which starts in just 88 days in Spain,’ he added.
In addition to having Glenn in the Zerofit stable, the brand also supports younger riders with product and sponsorship including Sam Laffins, who won three times in the Pirelli National Junior Superstock Championship in 2023 and Peter Willis, one of the hottest prospects racing in the British Talent Cup.
While Zerofit baselayers help to give our trio of athletes a competitive edge on race tracks around the world, motorcyclists who use their bike every day for work, commuting or leisure, also greatly benefit from our products, most notably the Heatrub Ultimate Baselayer which offers five times more warmth than a regular baselayer.
