Dunlop out of the remainder of TT 2015

Tyco BMW rider William Dunlop has been ruled out of the rest of this year’s Isle of Man TT races following a crash during the Superstock practice lap at Laurel Bank. William was happy with his BMW Motorrad S1000RR machine and was on course for an impressive lap time before the incident, but most importantly William was not seriously injured.

He has sustained a broken rib and severe bruising and although very disappointed to be losing him from the remainder of the event, Tyco BMW team manager Philip Neill said: “It’s a cruel blow for William and obviously for the team at what is effectively the biggest road racing event of the year for us all. We had high hopes for William in our first year here at the TT with BMW Motorrad, but we are relieved that he is relatively unscathed, having crashed at a very unforgiving part of the circuit.”
