Michael Dunlop's Ulster GP hopes hit by back injury

He believes a clean sweep of the main races at Dundrod is a possibility following his Supersport and Superstock treble in 2011, but his goal of achieving the feat has been made significantly more difficult as a result of his untimely back injury.

“At least at Armoy I was able to get a bit of a break between the races but it won't be like that at the Ulster because the races are bang, bang, bang, one after the other,” he added.

“We'll just take it as it comes on the day but apart from that I'm in good form, I've been winning a pile of races and there's no reason why I can't keep doing that at Dundrod.

“Five wins would be nice but I won't be getting carried away and a lot needs to fall into place for that to happen.”
