    I rented ‘Road’ a couple years ago, great movie about the Dunlap family.

    Northern Ireland motorcycle racer William Dunlop has been killed in an incident at the Skerries 100 road races in County Dublin on Saturday.

    It is understood that William was taking part in an Open race practice session on his Temple Golf Club-backed R1 Yamaha when he crashed at the Sam's Tunnel section of the 2.9-mile circuit on the third lap around 17:00 BST

    God Bless William and his family

    What a tragedy for the rest of the family. The racers knew how dangerous it was, and they all chose to do it anyway, but it sure is awful that their family has had to bury so many sons.

    Also, as many here have said, if you are into motorcycle racing *at all*, watch Road - it's an absolutely incredible movie, albeit especially tragic after this event.
