Simon Andrews set to be released from hospital after TT crash

'Simon Andrews is in good spirits and is due to be discharged from hospital within the next few days' - Simon Andrews
Honda TT Legends rider Simon Andrews is in 'good spirits' following his crash during Saturday's Superbike race at the Isle of Man TT.

Andrews broke his wrist and ankle in the crash and also sustained a cracked shoulder.

A statement from the Honda TT Legends team said the Evesham ace was due to be released from Noble's Hospital in Douglas in the 'next few days'.

Andrews, who made his debut at the event in 2011 when he finished as the fastest newcomer, came off his 1000cc Fireblade at Graham's on the Mountain section of the 37.73-mile course on the first lap.

He is competing in the Endurance World Championship for 2012, with the North West 200 and Isle of Man TT international road races part of his schedule.

Andrews finished fourth in the main superbike race at the North West 200 in Northern Ireland last month and had impressed during practice at the TT, lapping at 127mph.
