Road racers still critical after crashes at Dundrod

By Aaron Tinney

The two racers injured in high-speed crashes during the Ulster Grand Prix are still critically ill.

A spokeswoman for the Belfast Health Trust last night confirmed Steven Lynd (36) and Gavin Lupton (37) remained in the intensive care unit at the Royal Victoria Hospital.

Templepatrick man Lynd sustained his injuries when he crashed during practice at Dundrod last Wednesday.

English rider Gavin Lupton from West Yorkshire was injured on Thursday after a crash during the Dundrod 150 Challenge race.

Lupton's wife Hannah had told well-wishers on Facebook he would be undergoing surgery for hip and leg fractures.

She wrote: "Gav is still stable and they have started to reduce the sedation now, also reducing the blood pressure medication and removed the muscle relaxant… baby steps but all in the right direction."
