Garry McCoy targets Magny Cours World Supersport return

1 of 1

Garry McCoy is planning to make his return to motorcycle racing at the penultimate round of the World Supersport Championship at Magny Cours on 3rd to 5th October.

Garry McCoy has been out of action for over a month after suffering a horrific crash during the Saturday Free Practice session at Brno, Czech Republic.

McCoy collided with Ten Kate rider Andrew Pitt and lost control of his SC Triumph Daytona 675 and hit the Armco barrier.

The Australian suffered severe injuries including a broken T6 vertebrae and three broken ribs which affected his internal organs.

Speaking to MCN after travelling from Andorra to attend Craig Jones’ funeral, McCoy said:

“I still can’t take a full breath because of the broken ribs. One of my ribs broke in three places which has caused a lot of pain. With the broken vertebrae I have to wear a body cast which doesn’t sound too bad but for the first six weeks I have to wear it day and night everyday.

“I’ve only taken it off to shower and when I sleep I have to wake up first before I turn over!”

“After the six weeks are up, I then need to wear it for another two weeks but only during the day. I’m already looking forward to getting on the bike again. In a way I feel ready now but I know I’ll have to wait.”
