Michael Dunlop takes a year out

The hottest property in real road racing Michael Dunlop...who won 4 TT's in a week this year along with UGP , NW 200 wins.,Classic TT.,Scarborough Gold cup., and numerous Irish 'National' road races has split from Honda and will not race in 2014.

His absence next year on the 'roads' will be huge.

I thought he signed with Tyco Suzuki as Guy Martin's team mate?

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Unhappy I'm shocked Brian...

.

This is big news, I certainly thought after last year's results he'd stay with Honda Legends, I wonder what the issue was?

I suspect something will get sorted but not in one of the bigger teams, maybe Wilson Craig Honda, unless Honda can perhaps block him signing for a Honda supplied team as he's rejected Legends contract?

Dunno John..........,there's been a 'fallout in the camp' somewhere.
Bear in mind that of the 4 wins Michael had at this years (2013) TT ...3 of them were on Michael's own bikes!....including that incredible lap record on His own Superstocker!.
Anyway the pressure is off John McGuinness next year now perhaps?.

Too right!....he had a great result at Macau!.
He'll probably (hopefully) be at the NW 200 and we'll get a better Idea then.............,If he's a match for Alastair Seeley there..,then John's in trouble
And what about Josh Brookes!.
I'd just love to see Michael on the Grid next year as he's spectacular to watch.

from what I heard Michael split from Honda, as there was some implication that Honda wanted McGuiness to win and there were suggestions of sabotage.... I think that is a pc as I can be lol
