Roads: Michael Dunlop to miss Ulster Grand Prix
Tyco BMW’s Michael Dunlop will miss this week’s Ulster Grand Prix races from Dundrod.
The six-time event winner failed to attend last night’s compulsory rider briefing, which was earmarked by organisers as the cut-off point for him to decide whether or not he would compete.

Michael’s brother William Dunlop was tragically killed last month in a crash during one of the practise sessions at the Skerries 100 races in Ireland.
Dunlop has enjoyed a successful 2018 roads campaign, with three more victories at the Isle of Man TT taking his tally of wins to 18 - making him the third most successful rider of the course of all time, behind John McGuinness on 23 and his uncle Joey Dunlop on 26.
