So good to see Ryan on the mend after his NW200 crash

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 19/05/2016

Today we publish the photographs every motorcycle race fan wants to see - rider Ryan Farquhar recovering in hospital after his horrific accident at the North West 200. He is pictured alongside two other riders also on the mend following crashes and he speaks for them all when he praises the medical staff, both at the Portrush course and in the Royal Victoria Hospital, for saving his life and ensuring the other riders got the best possible treatment.

And as he poignantly pointed out the margin between life and death is very slim for these riders as the unfortunate death of Malachi Mitchell-Thomas at the races proved.
