This incredible photograph shows Michael Dunlop preparing
for the 2009 North West 200, at the infamous
Dark Hedges near Stranocum, County
As always with Stephen Davison’s work, the picture not
only shows a racer at work, but creates an iconic image which embodies the speed,
passion and drama of road racing.
This is ‘between-the-hedges’ racing in the truest sense, and
a particularly poignant image as it was just one year earlier that Michael lost
his dad – racing legend Robert Dunlop – in a crash at the North West 200.
Michael’s ride to victory in the 250cc race at the 2008
meeting, just days after Robert’s fatal crash, was an emotionally-charged
moment for the youngster, but a moment which demonstrated the determination it
takes to win.
This determination is wonderfully shown in this
photograph, showing Michael working hard to get in every minute of practice
before taking on the Triangle again.
