Adam McLean is ‘in really good spirits’ following his crash at the Tandragee 100 on Saturday.
The young Tobermore man came off at high speed as he held second place in the Supertwin race behind Derek McGee at the Cabra straight.
The race was immediately red-flagged and McLean was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital for treatment, when his injuries were initially reported as ‘non serious’.
On Saturday night, his McAdoo Racing team issued a positive update on his condition.
A statement said: “Adam is in the Royal Hospital, Belfast after an accident in the Supertwin race. He has arm, shoulder and pelvic injuries but is in really good spirits and making jokes in the hospital.
