Dunlop to miss Cookstown!

Dunlop to miss Cookstown! Michael Dunlop will not be riding at the 2021 KDM Hire Cookstown 100, The Ballymoney rider has been crafted into the Dynavolt Triumph team, to replace the injured Brandon Passch for the next BSB round, no doubt disappointing news for road race fans. This is not the first time Dunlop has ridden a Triumph, as he rode in the World Supersport championship many years ago. Dynavolt Triumph welcomes Michael Dunlop to the team as a stand-in for Brandon Paasch as he undergoes surgery to the scaphoid fracture suffered at Snetterton last weekend. Dunlop needs no introduction and is no stranger to the PTR run Dynavolt Triumph team having enjoyed success with the team on the road circuits in the past. Paasch will return to action at the Quattro Group British Supersport Championship round at Oulton Park later this month. Michael Dunlop: “Really good news to be riding the Dynavolt Triumph at Silverstone. I’ve been watching the bike as it’s progressed this year and the team seems to have done a great job. As a lot of people know I’ve had success with PTR and it will be great to be working with Simon and the boys again. It’s a good opportunity, I’m looking forward to it. Let’s see what we can do, it will be great to see everyone there.” Dynavolt Triumph Team Manager Simon Buckmaster: “We’ve a good working relationship with Michael, he’s got good feel for a bike and he’s a good supersport rider. He’s really looking forward to it and so am I. It will be great working with him again, we’ve really enjoyed it in the past. Let’s see if we can’t surprise a few people.” “Brandon has seen a specialist today and he’s having surgery to insert a screw in his fractured wrist later this week. As long as he’s passed fit, and the specialist has given him every indication he will be, he hopes to be back on our bike at Oulton Park. We look forward to that and hope he can continue with his progression and win races before the end of the season.”
