Last weekend Dunlop successfully competed in the Armoy Road races where he won both Superbike races despite the injuries he picked up in the Southern 100 in the Isle of Man earlier this month .
This came just week after he injured his shoulder in a crash during Rally Donegal. He also hurt his wrist in a testing spill prior to May’s North West 200.
With a broken pelvis, fractured ribs and a hip bone injury, he hobbled to the track on crutches showing his innate tenacity and the racing blood in his brains. However after the race he had to attend A&E with a suspected broken wrist such was the physical effort he put in to win the Race of Legends and Open race on Saturday.
The Ballymoney rider now has his arm in plaster and was advised by the attending doctor that he would need to stop racing immediately in order to recuperate from his injuries. But in true Dunlop style, Michael has vowed to defy the doctors orders so he can compete in the Ulster Grand Prix next week and Classic TT on the Isle of Man which starts on August 17.
He told his Facebook followers “The Doc reckons that’s the end of race season for this year – Think again Doc…”
Dunlop didn’t finish his season last year after the tragic death of his older brother William at the Skerries 100 so he seems absolutely determined to see this one out regardless of his injuries.
We wish Michael a very speedy recovery!
