Robert Dunlop (Sad News of Yer Mans Brother)

Sad News taken from a Belfast Paper

Northern Ireland motorcycle ace Robert Dunlop will be laid to rest near his legendary brother Joey in a tiny Co Antrim rural graveyard tomorrow.
Tens of thousands of mourners, many of whom will attend the North West 200 today, are expected to flood the small village of Garryduff to pay their last respects to the sporting great who died tragically on Thursday night following a high speed crash during a practice lap of the North West race.
The father-of-three, who holds the record for the most wins at the event, sustained serious chest injuries after he was thrown from his bike after it seized as he approached Mather's Cross.
It is believed he had been travelling up to 160mph. Mechanical failure is being blamed for the crash.
