Bikers exodus

As thousand of bikers depart the Island for another year, fans are reflecting on another year of Michael Dunlop domination.

 

He became the first rider to win four TTs in consecutive years when he secured his first ever success in the blue riband Senior event yesterday (Friday).

 

The victory saw the 25-year-old BMW rider from Northern Ireland join Phillip McCallen and the late Steve Hislop on 11 career TT victories.

 

Dunlop finished 14 seconds ahead of runner-up, Manxman Conor Cummins.

Guy Martin was a further 9.5 seconds behind to clinch the final podium place.

 

Peter Hickman set the fastest ever lap by a newcomer with a speed of 129.104mph on the final lap as he ended 11th.

 

Dunlop was thrilled to secure the iconic senior trophy.
