Michael Dunlop will ride for Eazi-Grip supported PBM Ducati at the TT

Michael Dunlop will ride a PBM Ducati at this year’s North West 200 and Isle of Man TT.

The Ballymoney rider had originally made the agreement in 2020 before the Covid-19 pandemic meant the meetings did not take place.

Dunlop, 32, will race a factory-supported PBM Ducati in both the Superbike and Senior races at this year’s events.

With 19 wins, Dunlop is the third most successful rider in TT history.

“We are delighted to be able to fulfil our promise and commitment to Michael albeit two years later than we had hoped,” said PBM’s team co-ordinator John Mowatt.

“We are thrilled to be contesting the major road races with Michael onboard the PBM Ducati and are hopeful of adding to both his and our considerable list of successes.”

Dunlop has earned five North West 200 victories with his last win coming in one of the Superbike races in 2016.

The Ballymoney rider also set the event’s lap record with a 123.207mph mark set in 2016.

North West 200 race boss Mervyn Whyte said confirmation of Dunlop’s Ducati challenge “seals the deal in ensuring this year’s NW200 Superbike races will be epic battles”.

The last four winners of Superbike races at the Triangle circuit – Glenn Irwin, Alastair Seeley, Peter Hickman and Dean Harrison – have already signed up for this year’s event.
