I could have gone faster! thumbnail

A DELIGHTED Michael Dunlop paid tribute to members of his backroom team after riding the Bennetts Suzuki GSX-R1000 to victory in Friday's Senior TT at the Isle of Man.
The Ballymoney man took the chequered flag in the blue riband race with a best lap of 132.903mph.
“The bike never missed a beat," he said.
“We had the problem in the Superbike race and if it wasn't for that we could have had two wins with the big girl.
“But we're here with a brand new motorbike and the boys have worked hard to get us to this point, and in that race she never missed a beat.
“Steve, all the team, put so much effort in and people won't understand how far we've come. We've made the impossible possible.
“I could have gone faster but it was important to get to the finish. This potential's been coming. If I'd had this bike at the North West 200 I think that would have been a different story, too.
“But we've won the Senior TT, what more can we say?" he added.
The race - which was restarted after a red flag - saw Dunlop lead from the off after making some setup changes to his GSX-R1000.
