Michael Dunlop claimed two Superbike wins at the Armoy Road Races despite being on crutches

Michael Dunlop won both Superbike races at the Armoy Road Races just 16 days after breaking his pelvis at the Southern 100.

Dunlop, who is walking with the aid of crutches, beat Derek Sheils and Derek McGee to secure his eighth successive 'Race of Legends' win.

The Tyco BMW rider earlier beat Sheils and Sweeney to win the Open Superbike race.

The victories were Dunlop's 18th and 19th around his home circuit at Armoy.

Dunlop dominated to win by 4.4 seconds from the in-form Sheils in the Open race, making it an impressive double by winning the final race of the day.

Earlier, McGee completed a hat-trick of victories after winning the Moto 3 and Supersport races.

McGee, who edged out Paul Jordan in Friday's thrilling Supersport opener, eased to victory ahead in the 600cc race, with Jordan sitting out the day's racing after a coming together between the pair after the chequered flag.

Mullingar rider McGee also won the Moto 3 race from Gary Dunlop and Melissa Kennedy to complete a treble at the event, with Barry Davidson winning the Supersport 300 class in the same race.

Davidson made it a double and was first home in the Junior Classic race, with Vinny Brennan coming out on top in the opening Junior Support race around the County Antrim circuit.

McGee was denied four wins after retiring from the lead on the sixth lap of the Supertwin race, which allowed Andy Farrell to win from Neil Kernohan and Stephen McKnight.

Kernohan did claim a victory in the Lightweight Supersport race, winning from Kris Duncan and David Howard.

Dominic Herbertson was a popular winner of the Senior Classic race, which was in memory of Frank Kennedy, who was killed at the North West 200 40 years ago.

There was a maiden win for Ryan Fenton in the Senior Support race as he led home Andy McAllister and Tommy Henry in the day's penultimate race.
