TT Supersport Podium for Dickies Sponsored Rider Dunlop

Northern Ireland based Tyco Suzuki recorded their second podium of TT2014 following a fine third place finish from Dickies sponsored rider William Dunlop in Supersport Race 2 on the Isle of Man. His team-mate Guy Martin took tenth place in the 4-lap encounter.Guy and William going head to head for Tyco at the TT

Dunlop had held second place at the first checkpoint on the opening lap at Glen Helen, but was overhauled by Bruce Anstey on the run to Ramsey. From there, the Ballymoney lad settled into a steady rhythm recording a respectable opening lap of 125.425mph.

Dunlop increased his pace on the second lap of four with a 126.161mph effort, increasing his advantage over eventual fourth placed finisher Dean Harrison. And from there the North West 200 Superbike race one winner steadied himself on the Tyco Suzuki GSX-R600 for a fine Isle of Man TT third place.

William Dunlop said: “That was a lot better effort than Monday; we are getting there. Despite riding the GSX-R600 at the North West 200 it is new to me at the TT, but I can’t fault it at all. The wee engine was flying today and the boys have done a good job. The mist in the closing stages on the Mountain was a bit off putting. I saw the fans waving at me on the third lap and thought, ‘I must be leading this!’ but realised Guy was behind me,” joked Dunlop.

Maurice Morton, sales and marketing director at Dickies stated: “We always believed the GSX-R600 was capable of running at the front and both Guy and William have shown on numerous occasions that they are also up to the task. The TT really is a matter of getting everything right on the day. It was pleasing to see William achieve Tyco’s second podium of the week and his first TT podium in Tyco Suzuki colours.”
