Ian Hutchinson breaks his leg again; the season is played, or something else

Bad. Terrible. Bad news from the British Isles. And it is that the eight times winner of the Tourist Trophy, Ian Hutchinson, the left tibia and fibula have been fractured again. He did not suffer a fall but in an exhibition on the ground Ian supported his leg badly, enough to destroy both bones. Let us remember that this same injury was the one that kept him out of the competition until the end of last year and forced him to miss the last edition of the TT. That moment It has cost him 16 operations and several skin grafts. According to the latest news, an injury of this type will keep him off the circuits for at least 12 weeks, missing the preseason and the start of the British Superbikes.

But Hutchy, as they call him, had managed to recover 100% and had even recovered the most important thing: the smile and the desire to compete. In fact, it had already been tested with the Swan Yamaha team in the last edition of the Macau Grand Prix. That participation also served to put the reigning BSB champions confident in their chances to team up with Tommy Hill in 2012.

A glimpse into the past

In 2010 Hutchy experienced the best moment of her sports career. In an unforgettable week of racing, the Englishman claimed five victories in the different categories of the TT. Unfortunately for him, that year also had the biggest setback he had ever faced.

It was in the British Superbikes Supersport race, at Silverstone 2010, when on a first curve soaked with water was involved in a multiple fall. In that same place, that same year, but in the world Supersport category Joan Lascorz made the effort to fight and overcome what bad luck had destined for him.

On behalf of All the team wish him a speedy and good recovery to enjoy seeing him again on a motorcycle, in the BSB or in any road race to which he joins.
