Donald ruled out of Classic TT after dirt bike accident

Australian star Cameron Donald will miss the Classic TT races after breaking his wrists in a dirt bike spill
Cameron Donald will miss the Classic TT races in August after breaking his wrists in a dirt bike accident.

The incident happened as the Australian rider was competing in the Wedderburn Six-Hour event and Donald will also miss planned tests with Norton in August.

“It was pretty muddy in the morning but it was drying out and uphill there was about ten axle-deep ruts I landed cross-rutted and clipped a tree on the side of the track and pole-axed myself over the bars,” said Donald.

“My left wrist only has a very small fracture so that remains out of plaster and should be fine, which is good, but my right one was done pretty bad and I had to get pins, plates and screws put in that.

“I just had to let Norton and the team saying that I won't be able to do the upcoming tests or the Classic TT, will have to miss August, gutted, but as they say, shit happens, unfortunately.”

Donald had been due to compete in the 500cc and 350cc races at the Classic TT for Ripley Land Racing.
