Tobermore's Adam McLean won his first ever international title at Thursday night's DGH Recovery Services Supertwins race at the Ulster Grand Prix in Dundrod.

McLean claimed his  win after a close battle with Christian Elkin.

Speaking after the race, McLean immediately dedicated the success to his fallen teammate James Cowton, who sadly lost his life earlier this year at the Southern 100.

“It’s nice. First international road race win sounds good but I’d like to dedicate that to James. Conditions were tricky out there but hopefully we can get out in the next couple of races and get as good a start as that again.”
