Astonishing double superbike wins for Injured Michael Dunlop at the Armoy Road Races

by Adnan El-Farzazi

A double Superbike win tops off a fantastic weekend for the Ballymoney racer who as reported by The Checkered flag, is suffering from a broken pelvis from the Southern 100 crash 16 days ago. He previously finished fourth in Friday evenings Supersport race and was within 1 second of the winner Derek McGee.

Absolutely amazing considering that the Tyco BMW rider was a doubt to race so soon after the terrible high side that had occurred just over a fortnight ago, but Michael Dunlop showed that he isn’t the man to be written off and justified his status as a Road racing modern-day legend.
