The McAdoo Racing team have confirmed that Adam McLean will be missing out on two of the biggest races on the Road Racing calendar.
The 23 year old Tobermore rider sustained injuries last week after a high speed crash in the Supertwin race during the Tandragee 100 in County Armagh.
He luckily escaped with his life, although sustained a broken arm, collarbone, shoulder blade, a fractured pelvis and a broken rib.
His team said: “Adam is pretty good considering. Thankfully his injuries are not too serious although they will take a bit of time to heal.”
“The main thing is that none of his injuries are too serious and they should all heal within a similar timescale. Adam is in good spirits although he is obviously gutted because he will miss the North West 200 and the Isle of Man TT.”
“We can’t put a timescale on his return but it looks as though he will miss the majority of the big races this season. It couldn’t have happened at a worse time just a week before the North West 200, but the most important thing is that Adam will be back”
“After what happened with James Cowton last year, we had some worrying moments on Saturday as we waited on news to come through after the crash. We’re just relieved that he is relatively fine.”
We wish Adam a quick and full recovery and hope to see him on the bike very soon.
