Michael Dunlop has been passed fit for this week's North West 200.

The Ballymoney racer had sustained a minor wrist injury after crashing during testing at Kirkistown, putting his appearance at the Triangle circuit in doubt.

However, the five-time North West winner has made a quick recovery. The 30-year-old last won at the North West in 2016 when he finished top of the podium in the Superbike race.

Dunlop will race in the Supersport, Superstock and Superbike classes in what will be his first road racing appearance since the passing of his brother, William last year.

William died during practice for the Skerries 100 races in Co Dublin in July 2018.
