William Dunlop: portrait
William Dunlop has settled in well as part of the Metzeler road race family. Since joining an all-star Metzeler line-up – that includes road race line-up top riders such as Guy Martin, Josh Brookes, Gary Johnson, James Hillier, Dean Harrison – earlier this year, William has achieved podiums and wins in most of the major road races, such as the North West 200, TT, and Armoy.
William Dunlop hails from the most successful family in the history of road racing: his father Robert Dunlop was five-times Isle of Man TT winner and 15-time North West 200 winner, while his uncle, the legendary Joey Dunlop, won the Isle of Man TT 26 times, also claiming 24 wins at the Ulster Grand Prix, plus 13 at the North West 200, in addition to 162 successes achieved in other road race competitions.
