Isle of Man TT: Michael Dunlop wins Superbike opener

Michael Dunlop ended BMW's 75-year wait for victory in the 'big bike' class at the Isle of Man TT with a stunning win in Saturday's Superbike opener.

Dunlop secured his eighth success by 20.5 seconds from Suzuki star Guy Martin, with Manxman Conor Cummins a further three seconds behind.

The Ballymoney man broke the absolute lap record on his first circuit at an average speed of 131.73mph.

The 25-year-old upped the record to 131.89 on his second lap but fourth-placed finisher Bruce Anstey improved that again with an amazing 132.30 on the final lap.
