The hype surrounding both Dunlop brothers participation at Cookstown yesterday was enormous.
Everyone tipped William to win the Moto3 (125), 250 and Supersport races, however as is so often with racing - things don't always work out like that.
He retired from the 125 on the second lap.
William appeared on the grid for the 250 and then pulled off before the start vacating his pole position. Fortunately for him the race was red flagged on race 2, permitting him to take part in the 3 lap restart, winning from Sam Wilson and Davy Morgan.
The anticipated Supersport race was a huge anticlimax as he didn't start leaving everyone very disappointed.
For me the picture below sums up the day......he wasn't really there.
Fingers crossed everything is going to plan for the TT.
