McCay was airlifted to Noble's hospital where his condition was not thought to be life threatening.

Speaking to Chris Kinley after the race, Russell paid tribute to his rival (play audio file):

Manxmen Sean Murphy and Ryan Kneen finished second and third respectively, to end a good day for Manx riders.
