Dirt rider recovering from accident
WHITSUNDAY Motosports club member Georgia Murray was discharged from the Mackay Base Hospital on Monday, after somersaulting off her bike while competing in a junior dirt track event at Middlemount on the weekend.
Georgia’s mother Nicki Murray said she was trying out a two-stroke for the first time when she hit neutral while riding on an up-ramp and somersaulted over the handle bars, knocking herself out for 30 seconds. Murray drove her daughter to Mackay Base Hospital where she was admitted as a trauma patient. “Ge- orgia’s X-ray, ultrasound and CT scan came back fine and she is now back at home getting some rest,” Murray said.
Georgia thanked the local community for their support and wellwishes. She is hoping to be back in action this weekend for a junior dirt track event in Townsville.
