Tyco Suzuki's Guy Martin celebrated his first international Superbike win of the year on Saturday at the Ulster Grand Prix and was awarded Man of the Meeting after bagging three podiums in a day.

The Lincolnshire rider took the main race victory and plus rostrums in the second Superbike and Superstock races on Saturday but says the main race was the one he came to win.

"It's been a great week at Dundrod and it's always the job to win the main Ulster Grand Prix Superbike race. I did my best in the second Superbike race to also take the win but if you're going to win one at Dundrod, the main race is the most important. No one comes to win the 'B race do they?" said Martin.

"The bikes worked superbly, so thanks to the boys and also to Pirelli who put in a big effort this week. It's nice to reward them with the main race win. Man of the Meeting is a bonus, but a great week overall."
