Any truth in the rumours??
Up at Tandragee there was talk of trouble twixt Mr. Dunlop and Tyco.

Hoping it's bullshit but does anybody know?

Was supposed to race at Oulton also, but suffered a broken / sprained wrist after a crash at Kirkistown last week.

Out again on the BMW practicing for the north west today, just like O’Halloran racing last weekend at Oulton Park with a broken arm, a hardy breed !

Think biggest problem with all the bmw's across the board is the lack of spares coming out of germany

Don't mind the rumours..

[QUOTE]Michael Dunlop was in flying form on the Seagull BMW in the opening session of the North West 200 as he posted the 2nd best time around the circuit today.


The Ballymoney man was nursing a minor wrist injury after a slip-off at Kirkistown in Co. Down and had to undergo a medical on Monday before being cleared to race.

However, the 30-year-old showed no ill-effects as he finished second fastest on the Tyco BMW Superbike, only half-a-second back on Dean Harrison.

Dunlop, who hasn’t raced on the roads since last year’s Senior TT, was third on his MD Racing BMW Superstock machine and fourth on his 600 Honda.

It was a performance that left Tyco BMW team co-owner Hector Neill all smiles as the Isle of Man TT looms on the horizon.

Neill said: “We’ve done quite a bit of testing and unfortunately he got the wrist injury, but it’s not putting him off any.

“He’s in good form and the bikes are good. We’ve done a bit of testing and got the bike the best we’ve had it and he’s liking it, so things are looking good for us.

“It’s nice to have Michael back in with us again and he’s sort of the last of the dynasty. I’d love to see him get a win to tell you the truth.”[/QUOTE]
