Believe it or not, but crash-prone road racer Guy Martin escaped this crash at the NW200 Saturday without major injury. The same can't be said for his GSX-R600. "It was unfortunate that Guy had to sit out the meeting after a very nasty crash in the opening race on Saturday," stated team manager Phillip Neill. "He took a fairly hefty bang on the head and was just not fit enough to race on, so it was best option."

"I’m disappointed to miss out on the meeting and pretty frustrated as I didn’t feel I was doing anything wrong when I tucked the front, even though the bike does get a bit unsettled through that bumpy section," understates Guy. "I had a really stiff neck after the crash and I had taken a bit of a battering so it was best to sit it out. I’ll be grand for the TT."
