William Dunlop moves up seven places in Duke Road Race Rankings

Ryan Farquhar retains a healthy lead in the 2010 Duke Road Race Rankings, but Ian Hutchinson is closing fast thanks to his record-breaking five wins at the 2010 Isle of Man TT and William Dunlop is on the move.
A history-making five wins in a week at the 2010 Isle of Man TT has allowed Ian Hutchinson to close the gap on runaway Duke Road Race Rankings leader Ryan Farquhar, while William Dunlop also improves his position.

Dungannon man Farquhar now has 901 points, with Yorkshire's Hutchy on 809. However, with Farquhar fully committed to the roads and Hutchinson, who has a full-time Padgetts ride in the British championship, unlikely to figure on the roads again until the Ulster Grand Prix, it is Ryan who remains favourite for the rankings win.

Farquhar is chasing his fifth Duke Road Race Rankings title in 2010, and has been told he can keep the prestigious Geoff Duke Trophy if he claims victory this year, as it would be his third win in a row!

While he remains the favourite, the Dunlop brothers Michael and William are in the running with a programme of road races this summer. Michael is already in third, with 505 points, and William moved up seven places to fifth and 402 points with three victories from three starts in the Manx Telecom Post TT Road Races.

The races on Saturday at the 4.25-mile Billown circuit in the south of the Isle of Man were the sixth round of the Duke Road Race Rankings series, which features 26 rounds and will end in Macau.

Scot Keith Amor will also be looking to improve on his fourth place and 452 points as the season continues.
