Michael Dunlop Wins 23rd TT Race in Superbike
On day two of racing Michael Dunlop beat out Peter Hickman and Dean Harrison to win Superbike race 1. All three riders were favorited to win Superbike TT race 1. However, Dunlop capitalized on his experience and flying hot lap times and set a scorching 133.910 mph lap. While not the fastest lap of the race Dunlop led second place finished Peter Hickman by 8.233 seconds. Hickman had the fastest lap but was not able to stay consistent with that pace and eventually fell back to Dunlop. It appeared that Hickman had throttle issues during the race which may have contributed to his inconsistent pace.
Dean Harrison finished 3rd and was not able to match the pace of Dunlop and Hickman. Two riders registered but did not start the race. There were 10 retirements from the race. With the win Dunlop secures his 23rd TT win. He is currently registered to participate in more races this weekend so he has the opportunity to extend this feat.
