Cummins and Kneen lead Manx effort

Manx racers Conor Cummins and Dan Kneen will be part of full grids at the Ulster Grand Prix International Road Race week which starts today.

Roads around the Dundrod course will be closed today from 9am to no later than 9.30pm for practice ahead of the Dundrod 150 races tomorrow evening.

Ulster Grand Prix qualifying - including a flying one lap superpole for the top ten riders in the superbike class - is tomorrow with racing on Saturday.

Guy Martin is in the United States for a Triumph land-speed record so will not have competed at any of the international meetings in 2016.

Most fans will be looking forward to the developing rivalry between Michael Dunlop and Ian Hutchinson after some spicy exchanges between the pair at the T.T. in June.
