1 of 1

Manxman Conor Cummins has suffered a broken arm in a crash at last night’s races at the Southern 100, potentially leaving the Honda Racing rider in doubt for next month’s Ulster Grand Prix.

Cummins was one of four riders involved in the crash at Ballakeighan on the opening lap of the 600 race. Ivan Lintin, Tom Parkes and James Cowton also fell. Cummins and Parkes were airlifted to Nobles, where the duo was described as having non-life threatening injures. Cowton and Lintin also attended hospital for check-ups but have been released.

Initial reports from local radio station Energy FM suggest Cummins has broken his left forearm but he was said to be conscious and in good spirits, while parkes has been discharged.

The Ramsay man was set to resume his international roadracing campaign next month on the factory Honda machinery, but that could now be in doubt as he enters a race to full fitness, with only four weeks to the start fo the event.
