    Fan favourite Michael Dunlop will return to the Isle of Man TT Races with Tyco BMW for 2019.

    Dunlop added three more wins to his tally at TT 2018, riding a combination of Tyco machinery and his own MD Racing bikes, to take him to third place on the all-time winners board behind legends John McGuinness and Joey Dunlop.

    Dunlop has his sights firmly fixed on adding to his impressive tally of silverware. He said: “We grabbed a Superbike TT win last year, which was a good start, and the goal this year will be to go after both the Superbike and Senior TT wins.”

    Although the team and rider are remaining the same, one element of the mix will be changing as BMW introduce the new S1000RR.

    Michael confirmed he was expecting to test the new superbike shortly. He said: “With the added improvements to the package and a second season with the same team, we should be in a good place to go after both the big wins on the Island.
