Michael Dunlop is aiming to retain his North West 200 Superbike crown on Saturday after joining the Milwaukee Yamaha team for 2015.

The 26-year-old is among the big race favourites this week as he builds towards the Isle of Man TT, where Dunlop has won 11 races, including two record-breaking four-timers in 2013 and 2014.

This video from 2012 showcases the incredible speeds reached around the 8.9-mile North West 200 course, with Dunlop at the controls on the MD Racing Honda Fireblade.
