Published: 23 June 2016

William Dunlop is looking to return to winning ways as he confirms his participation in the 2016 Armoy Road races next month.

Wins at Cookstown and Tandragee set the Ballymoney man up with a good start to the year, but things went wrong at the North West 200 after he separated with his team in the week leading up to the event. The 2016 Isle of Man TT was also a tough affair for Dunlop, who was left battered and bruised after a crash on the first night of practice.

Having taken Supersport victories at Armoy in 2014 and 2015, Dunlop will be hoping to return to the top step once again has he returns for the eighth running of the event.

“The Armoy Road Races are my local races and it is just one of those events that is always marked in the calendar each and every year,” said Dunlop. “I rode at the very first year Armoy Races in 2009 on a 125 cc and a 600cc in the Open race and I’ve come back every year since then. The 125 cc was what I learnt my trade on, from my father, so it is always very special to go to Armoy.”
