Kneen to race for Tyco BMW at Ulster GP

Manx motorcyclist Dan Kneen will ride for Tyco BMW at this year's Ulster Grand Prix.

The 30-year-old replaces 16-time TT winner Ian Hutchinson, who misses the event while recovering from injuries sustained at this year's TT.

The team believes Kneen's recent results at the TT and Southern 100 mean he'll slot in well for a one-off appearance with Tyco BMW.

Kneen is a former winner at the Dundrod event, and secured his first TT podium earlier this year.
