Farquhar Out of MGP

Ryan Farquhar will not be racing at this year's Manx Grand Prix.

It's all to do with a serious injury to English rider Lea Gourlay who came off at Dawson's Bend during last Wednesday evening's practice session at the Ulster Grand Prix.

Ryan's sponsor for the Paton bike he was due to race around the Mountain Course is Roger Winfield, who is also involved with supporting Lea Gourlay.

Gourlay will be in hospital for some time after fracturing bones in his neck in the incident at Dundrod.

All parties have agreed it's more important to support him and his wife in Northern Ireland while he recovers:
