Easton injured on NW200

The Scot collided with MSS Colchester Kawasaki team-mate Gary Mason in a high-speed accident.
North West 200 organisers have confirmed Stuart Easton has been taken to hospital suffering with a suspected fractured leg and pelvis following an accident on the second day of practice.

According to updated statement issued by the NW200 organisers, Easton has been transferred to Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast after his broken pelvis was confirmed.

"Stuart Easton has been transferred from Causeway Hospital to the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast to undergo further examination following an incident at Cromore Service Station during the first practice session this morning.

"It has been confirmed that the rider has a broken pelvis and several broken fingers."

Easton was initially taken to hospital in Coleraine with leg and pelvis injuries after apparently colliding with MSS Colchester Kawasaki team-mate Gary Mason at Station Corner. Mason, who is believed to have suffered a mechanical problem, was unhurt.

Easton's injury is a huge blow to his British Superbike Championship hopes, the Scot having got himself up to third in the overall standings aboard the new ZX-10R after claiming three podiums in the first six races.
