HUTCHY BREAKS LEG

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Ian Hutchin­son is be­lieved to have bro­ken his fe­mur on the same leg he in­jured in his 2010 crash at the Sil­ver­stone BSB meet­ing af­ter slid­ing off his Tyco BMW at the 27th mile­stone dur­ing the Se­nior TT. Early in­di­ca­tions are that the break is higher up on the leg and has not dam­aged the old in­jury.

Hutchin­son was ly­ing sec­ond to Peter Hick­man on the Smith’s BMW as they climbed the moun­tain on the sec­ond lap of the Se­nior race. The win­ner of the Su­per­bike and Su­per­stock races at TT 2017 had been locked in a split-sec­ond bat­tle with Hick­man from the drop of the flag.

Af­ter the crash, which forced the or­gan­is­ers to red flag the race when the air fenc­ing was dragged into the road, Hutchy was flown by he­li­copter to Noble’s hospi­tal. He is un­der­stood to have re­turned to the main­land to be treated by the sur­geon who op­er­ated on his leg in 2010.

Ian Hutchin­son tucks the front head­ing onto the Moun­tain Mile... ...he’s still caught up with the bike when he hits the safety fenc­ing...
