An injury which would see other road racers sidelined for a few months at least, seemed more an inconvenience to the rider who turned up ready to race for practices on Friday.

Just going to show the Dunlop ‘thran-ness’ and determination that his late father Robert also showed, and what makes Michael one of the best road racers around.
