Dickies Sponsored William Dunlop Takes Supersport Win At Skerries

Dickies sponsored superbike rider, William Dunlop, has come out on top at the Irish Skerries 100 in county Dublin. Just 4 weeks ago the rider crashed at the Senior TT race,  breaking his leg, and was out of the races for a month. Dunlop returned to Skerries on his Tyco Suzuki GSX-R600 to take the Supersport victory by 6 seconds.

Dunlop comments on his return and victory at the event,

“It seems that my osteopath Micky Kerr has the magic touch: he got Tom Sykes back on track a couple of weeks ago and onto the top step of the World Superbike podium; now he’s helped me do the same on the roads.”

The team only brought the Supersport bike to Skerries in order to do a run and see how Dunlop’s leg felt before the Southern 100. Dunlop continues,

“Everything went to plan, I felt quite good out on track and as I’ve said all year, the Tyco Suzuki GSX-R600 is a great wee bike to ride.”

Dickies Sales and Marketing Director, Maurice Morton, adds,

“Like any rider, William was eager to get back to racing as soon as possible after his leg injury at the TT. His win at Skerries certainly shows he hasn’t lost any of the form he’s shown since jumping on the GSX-Rs this season.”

The next event will be at the Southern 100 on the Isle of Man at the end of July 2014.
