Black Eagle make high profile signing

Thirteen-time TT winner signs for Black Eagle

Black Eagle Racing has signed a high-profile replacement for the injured Lee Johnston.

Ballymoney man Michael Dunlop agreed an eleventh-hour deal and now heads into the 2016 Classic TT with three chances to add to his tally of victories.

He'll ride for Black Eagle in the 350cc, 500cc and Superbike categories.

Thirteen-time TT winner Dunlop has won the Superbike race twice previously - but has only registered one finish in the other two classes.

That was when he finished 7th in the inaugural 500cc race back in 2013.
