MCGUINNESS LIKELY OUT OF TT

JOHN MCGUINNESS FALLS OFF DURING NW200 QUALIFIER

John McGuinness is set to miss both the International North West 200 and the Isle of Man TT due to injuries sustained during a fall yesterday.

McGuinness fell from Honda's CBR 1000 RR Fireblade SP2 during Superbike qualifying at the North West 200. The fall happened at the Primrose Hill section of the course.

The session was immediately red-flagged and McGuinness took to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast. McGuinness had broken his right leg, which was operated on yesterday evening.

He is said to be in good spirits but will most likely be out of the TT which takes place in two weeks time.

His machine is still impounded by race organisers who've yet to establish the cause of the crash. Guy Martin - now sole rider for the Honda Racing squad - was withdrawn from the Superstock race last night as a precautionary measure.
