RID­ERS DOWN AT UL­STER GP

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

The tricky con­di­tions of Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day’s qual­i­fy­ing ses­sions at Dun­drod caught out Lee John­ston and Aus­tralian David John­son.

Last year’s Ul­ster tre­ble win­ner John­ston had opted to ride a 250cc Honda at the Ul­ster in prepa­ra­tion for the new Clas­sic TT stro­ker event, but the Fer­managh rider will have to sit out the Manx fes­ti­val af­ter break­ing his col­lar­bone when he high­sided on the exit from the hair­pin.

David John­son, who has just signed a new deal to ride the Nor­ton in 2017, was mak­ing a guest ap­pear­ance on the Wil­son Craig Hon­das that his com­pa­triot Cameron Don­ald raced at the TT when he crashed at Quar­ter­lands, sus­tain­ing shoul­der and leg in­juries.
