Broken collarbone after accident at Billown

Local rider Michael Evans is out of this year's TT.

Evans crashed at the Blackfords Pre-TT Classic in the post classic superbike event at Billown yesterday.

He was thrown off his bike just after Ballabeg Hairpin and sustained a broken collarbone.

In a post on his Facebook page, Evans says he's "gutted" as he'd worked hard this season to be ready for the TT.

He's promised to be back "stronger and faster".
